Officers first arriving on single and multifamily residential structure fires are faced with many challenges and often fewer resources than needed for full incident mitigation. This class is designed to refresh participants on primary incident management skills while providing the opportunity for hands-on, simulated application. Topic coverage and computer simulations are customized to specific departmental needs. Discussion will include command and control, incident organization, size-up, communications, personnel accountability and incident benchmarking. Computer simulations will be utilized to emphasize the topics discussed.
