Firefighter DownThis 2-Day Workshop will focus on the worst situation a Command Officer can face, a “Mayday”. This program will review “Mayday” operations in regards to OSHA regulations, NFPA standards and Volume 2. Case studies will be presented on the five basic “Maydays”:
Firefighter/crew lost or air problem
Firefighter/crew trapped, injured or unable to move
Multiple firefighters “Mayday”
NO communications “Mayday”
These case studies will be followed by “Mayday” simulations

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.
