    EMS providers respond to potentially volatile situations on a daily basis. However, most providers have never been taught the potential warning signs of a violent encounter or how to handle this type of situation. According to a study by the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians, the number 1 injury to EMS providers is assault, with 52% of those surveyed saying they had been attacked on the job. In addition, according to the University of Maryland “the risk of an assault for EMS workers is about 30 times higher than the national average.” This webinar provides an overview of the threat and provides responders with effective techniques they can use to mitigate their risks.

    [Live webinar on Thursday, November 18 at 12:00 pm EDT] In this webinar attendees will gain a basic understanding of standpipe systems; how they are constructed, how to use them properly and how to troubleshoot problems during responses.

    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 having a basic understanding of Standpipes systems will ensure firefighters know how these systems are constructed, how to use them correctly, and also troubleshoot problems during responses. Standpipe systems allow firefighters to access water supply and put hose lines more quickly and more efficiently, which allows rescue and fire suppression save lives. 

    The program should address: 

    • Identify Fire Department Connections or FDCs
    • Define the different classes of standpipe systems
    • Describe the components of a building standpipe system
    • Explain fire department general use of standpipe systems in the course of structural firefighting
