NJ Division of Fire Safety Fall Training Semester 2011

Saturday, September 17th, 2011


Instructors: Robert G. Moran, Fire Chief, City of Brewster, MA    John J. Lewis, Lieutenant (Ret.), City of Passaic Fire Department

Rapid Intervention Crews are the most significant, readily available fireground resource utilized to enhance the safety of firefighters operating at emergency incidents. This program will address the needs assessment for an incident commander and for the fire department of who, what, where, when and how does a RIC get developed, staffed and deployed. This program will provide an outline for instructors to utilize in preparing fire departments in accomplishing their goals of having a readily available RIC. This course covers state and federal mandates, size up, team composition, deployment, operational responsibilities, terminology, and post incident analysis.

The course will explore case studies as well as provide an emphasis on building construction, safety and size up to give students a better understanding of their roles and responsibilities when assigned as a RIC member on the incident scene.

To Go or Not to Go: Fireground Decision Making

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

Pioneer Hose Company # 1, Brick Twp. NJ Station 22

Sunday February 27, 2011

This session will provide an interactive forum designed to discuss and define the key relationships strategy and tactics, street-wise size up, and risk benefit analysis have on the critical first few minutes of structural firefighting operations.  By utilizing the  “Fire Service Rules Of Engagement”, first due video, and photo based scenarios the instructors will uncover the mission essential importance of gathering and evaluating building intelligence, identifying potential risks, and weighing the benefits of the chosen strategy and tactics prior to committing personnel to operate within these dangerous environments.  In addition, through the utilization of this “real time information” students will be challenged to rapidly develop, support, and justify effective incident action plans consistent with the hazards and risks of the incident.

(This program is designed to keep the students involved in the learning process by challenging them to utilize their existing knowledge as well as the training provided to make safe and intelligent decisions on the fire ground. An emphasis on Risk Benefit Analysis as well as Building Construction directs this program.)
