FIRE FIRE EFFECT:
The Lost Art of Realistic Training
This class discusses the rise and fall of realism in training and what impact it has on our firefighters. In today's fire service training we are often faced with the dilemma of having to choose between realism or safety. Students will learn how to get both and why it is so vital that we expose our trainee's to situations as close to real life as possible.
Through lecture, case studies, and hands-on evolutions we will discuss the benefits both mentally and physically that using high fidelity training bring to your training programs. Students will learn how to incorporate realism in a safe and effective manner while still maintaining compliance with NFPA standards. Whether you are the new recruit firefighter or the Chief, everyone can learn from this lecture and walk away with the knowledge needed to be better prepared and better trained.
