Fire Officer Training Program Description
This training program will cover how to be a leader within the unique municipal environment of a fire station, managing your boss, managing emergency incidents (beyond ICS), tactical lessons learned from near-miss and line-of-duty deaths, managing through others, involving the community, and advanced fire officer management/leadership tools. Participants will role play in the fictional Wombat City Fire Department as they apply the concepts covered.
Sessions 1 through 4 will focus on the new fire company officer (Fire Officer I). Sessions 5 and 6, as well as a bonus 7th session for users that attend all seven sessions, will be focused on the experienced officer (Fire Officer II). Each session will be offered twice to maximize availability for busy career or volunteer firefighters.
