    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

    [Live webinar on Thursday, October 28th at 12:00 pm EDT] In this webinar we will discuss the purpose and reasoning for a fire department to have a field training officer program and the benefits to the success of probationary firefighters and the long term investment these programs make for the fire 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 the purpose and reasoning for a fire department to have a field training officer program and the benefits to the success of probationary firefighters and the long term investment these programs make for the fire department. 

    The primary goal of a field training officer program is to serve as a “bridge” between the training a firefighter receives while assigned to the fire academy and the completion of the firefighter’s probationary period. 

    The program should address two specific areas: 

    • Provide ongoing training with the skills and policies that are necessary for a probationary firefighter to succeed on the department. 
    • Provide each probationary firefighter with an additional support network. This support network would allow the FTO to serve as a mentor and educate the probationary firefighter about the traditions, lifestyle, and overall culture associated with being a member of the fire service. 

    All firefighters graduate from the fire academy with a standard amount of basic training in fire and EMS skills. The challenge is to take this basic knowledge and learn how to apply it to the day to day activities that occur in the performance of his/her duties. 

    The goal of any FTO selection program should be to recruit, select and retain experienced firefighters of the highest caliber to serve as Field Training Officers. The goal also includes phasing probationary firefighters into the department and creating solid foundations on which to build their career.

    [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

    [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.”
