This is a new program segment for the Firefighter Training Podcast called Leadership Language. We will take short words or phrases and make them into leadership and fire officer principles. These short segments are designed to make you think, use these as motivators in the stations, and cause to you to reflect internally and make yourself a better officer. I hope you enjoy!
This week in leadership Language we talk about dedication.
Where should we be spending our training time on? What are the true basics that we need to focus on?

This week the panel will discuss the difficulties of operating in winter conditions. If any members of the panel have photos they would like to show, we can share them for discussion. The focus will be on basic fireground operations.

This week on the Firefighter Training Podcast Lt. Mike Daley asks the question, Are You Good Enough? I talk with Lt. Daley about the fire instructor, the fire officer, and a little bit of thermal imaging discussion.
This week we have a standard house fire with tree victims. Two of which are trapped, one is outside injured. Your first responding engine has 4 persons on it, your next piece of apparatus is 5 minutes away.
1.) What is the your radio report and your C A N report?
2.) How do you divide your crew?
3.) Which of the trapped victims will you work on first?
4.) What immediate action can you take with limited manpower that would make this situation better?
5.) How would you direct the help when they arrive? What orders would you give?
