Firefighter Safety/Survival/RIT

    • Saturday, March 16, 0800-1700
  • Class Limit:  12 participants
  • Prerequisites:   It is recommended that students be at least FFI and/or currently involved in an on-going fire training program. 

This course teaches self-rescue and the rescue of lost and/or trapped firefighters. This intensive training was developed in response to the tragic deaths of many firefighters in the nation, including Utah. Many of those who perished did so because they could not get themselves out of various working conditions. Unfortunately, on several occasions, as a fire community, we have also been unsuccessful in removing our fellow firefighters from difficult RIT situations. We train our firefighters in confined space, hazardous materials, infectious disease control, and incident command, but we have left out the most important topic... personal safety. Don't miss this class.

Special Instructions: Students must be able to obtain a proper seal with the SCBA facepiece. It is recommended by UFRA that all students be clean shaven before attending this class. Students must be in good physical condition and capable of working in a high stress survival training environment.

Safety PPE requirements: Each student needs to bring their own PPE (turnout pants and coat, NFPA structural firefighting boots, gloves, Nomex hood) including SCBA and firefighting helmet. Protective clothing and equipment must be in good condition. NOTE: UFRA cannot provide PPE for this class. If the student does not have the proper PPE then the student will not be allowed to participate in the skills or hands-on portion of the class.

Rural Command Training

  • Dates

  • Class Limit:  12 participants
  • Prerequisites:  None
  • Audience: This course is for volunteer firefighters who might be placed in an incident command assignment at a working structure fire.
  • Incident command at structure fires has its own challenges in the volunteer world. Personnel, apparatus, and water supply are typically limited resources when compared to urban areas. This new, one-day course will focus on real world incident command at structure fires applied to the limited resources frequently found in today’s volunteer fire service. Participants will have the chance to learn and practice proven incident command strategies that can help them successfully run incident command at structure fires in their own area with their own resources. The class also has one-minute drills and real, hands-on evolutions performed outside that are part of the class that will test the student's abilities along with command.
