Jim McCormack from Fire Department Training Network is an Indianapolis firefighter with a passion for training. In this episode we once again focus on the fundamentals of operating on the fireground, talking about stretching lines, searching, forcible entry and many others. We talk about simplifying the fireground into manageable steps.
Sprinkler systems are an invaluable resource to the firefighter. This week I discuss pre-planning these buildings that have sprinkler systems, understanding the basics of systems, and operating at fires in sprinklered facilities.
Dr Burton Clark shares a very sobering and insightful message during this episode about how to measure success. This very direct and thought provoking episode will at times make you think, at times might make you angry, but most of all Dr. Clark hopes will affect you so that you take action and make a difference with your own safety and that of your brothers and sisters on your department.
