This 2-Day Workshop will examine the growing problem of Big Box fires, warehouse fires and other types of emergencies. The daily tasks of most fire departments involve EMS and fires in residential homes. Crews typically perform well because they have routine procedures and command presence. Large commercial structures present an entirely new set of critical fireground factors, including complex arrangements with 50 to 100 times additional fire loads. Crews and Incident Commanders must be trained to change to a commercial mentality when approaching these incidents. These large commercial structures pose new problems to even the most experienced fire department crews.
|Topics include: Big Box and Warehouse Overview, Building Construction, Fire Protection Systems, Fire Control Room Simulation, and “Mayday” Operations; including Case Studies and 7 Simulations||
DATES: To Be Determined
8:30am – 4:30pm
Virtual Incident Command Center training is in compliance with the National Incident Management System (NIMS). All training is referenced to the National Response Framework (NRF), which serves as the guiding principles that enable all response partners to prepare for and provide a unified national response to disasters and emergencies. The NRF establishes a comprehensive, national, all-hazards approach to domestic incident response. When you successfully complete training at the VICC, you're the complete package for incident command.
*The Virtual Incident Command Center reserves the right to cancel a workshop if the minimum registration of 8 students is not met. The VICC office will notify all students prior to the start of class if it is deemed necessary to cancel.
