CF Tactics Seminar Agenda, Command & Control of Fires & Emergencies by Vincent Dunn, Chief Curt Isakson

$225 with 'FIRST20' Discount Code Full Registration Investment $299

Chief Isakson has released the agenda and for his upcoming two-day Command and Control class April 12th-13th, 2021, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Hilton Hotel on Pensacola Beach. This seminar-style event is limited to 48 professionals without only about 20 seats remaining. The program size promotes manageable classroom interaction and nightly networking opportunities.

 

This class offering will differ from County Fire Tactics “Commanding from the Sidelines” seminar that took place November 17th-19th, 2020 at the Pensacola Beach Hilton.

This seminar will blend Chief Dunn’s book with what Chief Isakson’s mentors have taught him, and what he has learned in 17 years of commanding fires as Battalion Chief in a diverse countywide setting.

Fire Officers today are juggling an infinite number of job duties related to administration, budgets, political interaction, medical response, fire prevention, inspections, and more.

The class agenda will be focused on topics from Command & Control of Fires & Emergencies by Vincent Dunn, to bring the active fire officer back to their primary focus, Fighting fires and responding to emergencies.

In a recent webcast interview with Strike the Box Training LLC, Chief Isakson said this class will be different from his other programs in the fact that he will discuss the need to have eyes on the fire building, allowing the incident commander to see in mere seconds what is and is not working, and make an immediate tactical decision. Why? … Because Tactics Put Out Fires !!!

Brian Brush, Firefighter Rescue Survey, This is going to be HUGE

Over the past 10-years, significant research has been conducted on firefighting operations, tactics, and service delivery. Studies on how we do business when the bell rings and we roll out of the fire station have been authored and published by NIST, UL FSRI, and the ATF. The results of these studies have driven significant changes in the fire service.

But until 2021, the fire service has been missing out on a huge data set that will be the next significant change in how we do business. NFIRS and other data collection programs focus purely on the negative, lost lives, property loss, firefighter deaths, etc. While we know that we have been saving civilian lives in residential fires all across the nation, Brian Brush is on a mission to prove it through academic research.

Welcome to the 2021 Fireground Civilian Rescue Research Project. Hold onto your seat, because the initial results are already astonishing. County Fire Tactics (CF Tactics, CFT) stands with and backs this initiative by Chief Brush. The final results are going to be HUGE, providing evidence to what we already know, that it’s worth the risk. Firefighter Rescue Survey is the first of its kind, focusing purely on saving lives, our primary mission focus.

Initial results of the 2021 Fireground Civilian Rescue Research Project Continue reading

♦ Command Success: Commanding from the Sidelines ♦

Through The Eyes of a Fireground Commander

Awesome 😊 Feedback from one of the Commanding From The Sidelines Seminar attendees this week. Literally Training put to use on his 1st Shift Back. So Excited 😆 to FINE TUNE this program. Just so much to cover about seeing through the 👀 eyes of a Fireground Commander.

Chief,

First off, thanks for putting on an amazing class and exceeding my expectations of what it was going to cover. I came into work this morning telling the crew about what was covered, especially about the DC having the TIC on him, I moved my TIC into the front seat and this fire came in as soon as I replaced the battery. Fire went good, quick knockdown and no injuries, but I was able to do a 360 with the TIC, it gave me a totally different perspective, i’m glad I had it because it was starting to run the attic. I’m hoping to implement some other things learned, but wanted to let you know that this one small thing made a big impact.

Thank you

Scott Gardiner
District Chief

NFPA “Not For Practical Application”

You can’t make this up.

This is from the NFPA, now we need a standard on tactics. All this will do is get every fire department sued if you deviate from the standard. This is gone to far, how can a committee put us in a box on making decisions on the fire ground. But they know whats best for us, they have no idea of what can of worms they are opening. I urge all of you to keep an eye on this!!

Dear Chief Dyer:
I am transmitting to you herewith the following action of the Standards Council (August 17-19, 2015):
At the April 2015 Standard Council Meeting, the Council considered the request of Richard Dyer, Kansas City, Missouri, that NFPA establish a new project to develop techniques and methods used in firefighting based on accepted scientific principles and research in the field of fire dynamics. The Council voted to solicit public comments.
At this meeting, the Council reviewed all of the material presented and voted to establish the Technical Committee (TC) on Fundamentals of Fire Control within a Structure Utilizing Fire Dynamics and approved the Committee scope. Once the Technical Committee develops and ballots a draft document (see Regulations 4.3.2.1), the Technical Committee may then make a request to the Council to enter an appropriate revision cycle.
APPROVED COMMITTEE TITLE: Committee on Fundamentals of Fire Control within a Structure Utilizing Fire Dynamics
APPROVED COMMITTEE SCOPE: This Committee shall have primary responsibility for documents relating to techniques and methods used in firefighting based on accepted scientific principles and research in the field of fire dynamics.
Kerry M. Bell, Chair, recused himself from the deliberations and vote on this issue. Very truly yours,
Linda Fuller, Senior Manager, Standards Operations Codes and Standards Administration
