  • [Webinar] Instruct-o-Gram Live: Driver/Operator Training in Context Proficiencies

    Contains 3 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 09/30/2021 at 12:00 PM (EDT)

    [Live webinar on Thursday, September 30th at 12:00 pm EDT] In this webinar we will provide the fire service instructor with the essential elements needed to administer a physical and tactical set of proficiencies expected of a previously trained driver/operator at a fire incident.

    The ISFSI Instruct-o-Gram Live webinar series brings a recently published Instruct-o-Gram alive with the author presenting key topics on implementing the material in your department. This month we are discussing the essential elements needed to administer a physical and tactical set of proficiencies expected of a previously trained driver/operator at a fire incident. 

    The driver/operator plays a critical role upon arriving at an incident to establish or support a successful fire attack operation. The operation and effectiveness of the apparatus will often be in proportion to the skills and abilities of the operator. The apparatus and operator are the anchor and support system to the Firefighters in the hot zone. 

    The driver/operator should be on-scene expert concerning the location, use, and functions of the tools and equipment on the apparatus. To a large degree, the fire apparatus is essentially a large "toolbox", who is responsible for its contents. 

    During this webinar, we will discuss:

    • Training in context proficiencies and why they are beneficial
    • The various apparatus proficiencies that may be tested
    • The benefits of anticipating the needs of attack crews, and how the driver/operator can assist
    • The benefits of being in an advantageous position to be an 'extra set of eyes' to perform continuous size-up and situational awareness

    Instructor: 

    Jeff Betz is a Firefighter at the City of Adrian and Madison Township Fire Departments. He is a retired career Lieutenant and Training Officer, as well as a retired On-call Assistant Chief and Training Officer at each department respectively.

  • [Webinar] Instruct-o-Gram Live: Fireground Incident Management at the Company Officer Level

    Contains 3 Component(s)

    [Live webinar on Thursday, August 26th at 12:00 pm EDT] In this webinar we will provide the fire service instructor with the essential elements needed to facilitate training & education for the company officer who will be tasked with command & control at structure fire incidents.

    The ISFSI Instruct-o-Gram Live webinar series brings a recently published Instruct-o-Gram alive with the author presenting key topics on implementing the material in your department. This month we are discussing the essential elements needed to facilitate training & education for the company officer who will be tasked with command and control at structure fire incidents.

    A structure fire does not discriminate based on who is managing the incident—the fire is going to behave in a manner whether a company officer or chief officer is commanding the incident.  Successfully management an incident is a combination of simulation training, case study review, education, and real-world experience.

    This IOG webinar will provide the fire service instructor with the essential elements needed to facilitate training & education for the company officer who will be tasked with command & control at structure fire incidents.  Specific topic areas will include the following:

    • The importance of fireground command
    • Roles and responsibilities of the incident commander
    • Routine incident command deficiencies at the company officer level
    • The NIOSH “5”
    • How to build simulation slides that will enhance recognition primed decision making

     

    Incident management is not designed to extinguish fires, conduct searches, and perform ventilation.  It is designed to manage firefighters who are tasked with assignments that satisfy incident priorities.  As a legendary fire chief once stated, “the first five minutes determine the next five hours.”

  • [Webinar] Instruct-o-Gram Live: Developing Leaders Within: How to Create & Facilitate an Officer Development Program for Your Department

    Contains 3 Component(s)

    In this webinar we will discuss how to create and facilitate an officer development program for your department.

    The ISFSI Instruct-o-Gram Live webinar series brings a recently published Instruct-o-Gram alive with the author presenting key topics on implementing the material in your department. This month we are discussing how to create and facilitate an officer development program for your department.

    Our primary mission in the fire service is to be there for THEM. The weight of our responsibilities in the fire service seems to be getting heavier by the month, and while departments continue to rely on their company officers to effectively lead in the firehouse and the fire ground, many times succession planning and/or development of future officers before promotion is minimal at best. Even after promotion training is heavily focused on company or firefighter performance and typically includes very little continuing education for company officer's and above. The Fire Chief recognizes this and tasks you as the departments chief of training and/or lead instructor to develop and deliver a company officer academy/development program to better prepare future leaders for their positions. Now what? This webinar will expand upon the July IOG.

    Topics to be covered include: 

    - Performing a needs assessment/SWOT analysis of current training opportunities and needs for a new program.
    - Instructor selection/considerations
    - Defining standards and best practices to anchor your training in.
    - Identifying partnership and collaboration opportunities.
    - Developing curriculum 
    - Developing the budget
    - Developing performance criteria AND
    - Evaluating the programs effectiveness
