>> Register Here << Fire ground decision making should be based on facts discovered through experience and validated by research. Our agency SOG’s must be tied to contemporary evidence-based findings. Through a combination of data from UL’s Fire Safety Research Institute (FSRI) experiments and vast experience of our instructors (Keith Stakes Battalion Chief Montgomery County FD and FSRI Engineer, Derek Alkonis Assistant Chief (Ret.) Los Angeles County FD, Sean Gray Fire Captain Cobb County FD & Chad Christensen Battalion Chief Los Angeles County FD, several consistent themes have emerged that will improve firefighter effectiveness. The Tactical Considerations supporting Engine and Truck Company operations included within this class will challenge, or perhaps reinforce, your Strategies, Tactics and Tasks addressed within your SOG/SOP’s.
