A tactics class, not a data class! This program reconciles the new science with proven tactics to keep your members safe. Tactical implications with lessons learned from the National Institute of Standards and Technology, UL, and Yale studies without losing our identity are covered, as are command, size-up, fire attack, ventilation, and search. This new understanding is not as scary as it seems. What is considered new is based off tactical pieces of the puzzle that have been in practice for years. The latest science has just given us the full picture to link understanding and improvement on our tactical disposition–vent-enter-search with a focus on closing the door addresses flow path, attacking fire blowing out the front door has been the practice in most every city for years, and hitting it hard from the yard for a few seconds is called a “blitz.” Instructor and students will tackle some significant changes together to effect a better understanding.
