Rural Incident Command for Volunteer Firefighters

  • Dates:  (2, 8-hour courses offered)

  • 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.
