Firefighting Today Weekly Roundtable – Is Recruit Training Effective?

The panel will discuss all aspects of recruit training. Are we teaching the right subjects? What topics are we teaching? How much practical versus classroom theory? Are we teaching values and culture? More importantly than all of that how can we make it better. The panel may also discuss effective methods for teaching certain topics.

Firefighting Today Roundtable – What is your most challenging non fire response?

Most Challenging Non Fire Response For Your Agency? What are you doing about it to prepare? The panel will discuss what’s on their minds but further will try to help the viewers prepare for what they bring to the table. Is it High Angle Rescue, trench or collapse, is it active shooter, contamination by Fentanyl or even complicated extrication without the proper equipment available. I hope the panel will share it’s expertise for strategic and tactical considerations for the unknown and some decision making solutions.
