Training:Commanding from the Front Seat
March 30 @ 8:00 am - March 31 @ 4:00 pm
FREE 16-Hour (2-Day) Program
The goal of NYSAFC’s free 2-day (16-hour) Commanding from the Front Seat program is to assist fire departments in meeting the best practices for the person riding in and commanding from the front right seat of any fire apparatus. These skills are outlined in the Recommended Best Practices for Fire Department Training Programs document issued by the New York State Office of Fire Prevention and Control and referenced by the New York State Department of Labor Public Employee Safety and Health Bureau. Through lecture, discussion, class activities, and case studies, students will learn and apply the principles of fireground safety and survival through proper supervision. Objectives outlined in the program entail supervision, direction, tactical knowledge, and communications. Most fire service line of duty deaths (LODDs) are caused by the lack of these essential skills. Limit of 36 students per site. Pre-registration required.
