The 2011 Joplin Tornado was a devastating EF-5, multiple-vortex tornado that struck Joplin, Missouri, late in the afternoon of Sunday, May 22, 2011. It was part of a larger late May tornado outbreak sequence and reached a maximum width in excess of 1 mile during its path through the southern part of the city. It rapidly intensified and tracked eastward across the city. It ranks as one of Missouri's and America's deadliest tornadoes and is likely to be the costliest. It is also only the second F-5 or EF-5 tornado in Missouri history dating back to 1950. This class will cover the deadliest tornado to hit the United States since 1947, and the response.


402 – Added Value Leadership – NEW

Alan Brunacini, Fire Chief, Retired, Phoenix FD, AZ

The major reason a fire department is in business is to deliver service to Mrs. Smith, our customer. She remembers that we responded quickly and solved her problem, but most of all, she remembers that we were nice to her and her family. Adding value, mostly being nice, is what made the biggest difference to her. Fire department bosses must understand that the way they treat their firefighter is passed along to the customers. Chief's must extend any behavior on the inside to Firefighters that they expect those Firefighters to extend to Mrs. Smith on the outside. What we will discuss in this session is very simple and very important……added value service, requires added value leadership.

 


405 – Bars and Nightclub Fires

David A. Hall, Chief, Springfield FD
(Click here for biography)

While there are nearly 31,000 nightclubs in the United States, the likelihood of having a fire in a nightclub is relatively small. However, the severity of such an incident when one occurs can be devastating. Frequently, these occupancies are at or over their capacity; they include high risk behaviors such as smoking and drinking; and they are plagued by locked or blocked exits. In this workshop, the participant will learn about the hazards and prevention principles for these occupancies. Participants will also cover normal construction methods and basic firefighting strategies for those facilities as well as conducting in-class scenarios to develop their skills.

 


406 – Bombing: Injury Patterns and Patient Care – NEW

John McCoy BSEMT-P, Director Emergency Medical Services Education Institute, University of Missouri Health Care

This workshop will cover unique knowledge and skills required to effectively respond to a mass casualty explosion or bombing event. Participants will understand the uniqueness of; blast physics, the most common types of blast injuries, and the appropriate treatment (pre-hospital and initial hospital), and injuries that result from a blast. Other topics that will be covered are terrorist bombings, scene safety, and military experience. (EMS CEUs-Module V, Division III)
