Chief Isakson's Presentation
Tuesday, September 27, 2022, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM Today’s fireground requires tactics that take modern fire behavior, building construction, and response models into consideration. We must use the UL studies, Firefighter Rescue Survey results, and civilian fire fatalities data to better deploy our local fire resources to meet life safety and property loss priorities. When smoke detectors fail, the fire service cannot fail, because we are their last line of defense. This workshop will provide attendees with approaches to getting the annual civilian fire fatality numbers consistently below 2,000 a year by showing you how to use data to assist us in adjusting our fireground assignments in the first five to seven minutes to remove trapped occupants sooner while still using decades of proven fireground tactics that work.
Wednesday, September 28, 2022, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM This class is about more than just aggressive interior firefighting, it is also about standing strong against all odds to create a better and more effective fire service by putting yourself out there. Stay true to yourself, stay true to the mission, and stay true to the job. Aggressive does not mean unsafe. There is positive value in tradition, culture, and the core values that built the fire service. This means we can take acceptable risks, and make calculated tactical decisions based on your level of training, knowledge, and experience. You must understand that this is a tough and dangerous job that requires mental and physical toughness. More civilians are saved in one week than firefighters die inside structures in an entire year. We can and do make a positive impact in saving lives and property. With solid training the risk is truly reduced to a manageable level. Bringing back realistic and practical live fire training is needed.
Curt “Ike” Isakson is a 30+ year veteran of the fire service, with experience working in volunteer, career, and combination departments in urban, suburban, rural, and countywide settings.
He is currently a Battalion Chief for Escambia County Fire Rescue in Pensacola Florida where he has worked for the last 21 years.
