Summary:

Multi-Company Training should focus upon the individual firefighter's expectations, and present a challenge that re-enforces: consistency of performance, introduces new and modified procedures, and creates a general atmosphere in which learning occurs. The training officer should utilize creativity when preparing the lesson plan for the drills. In addition, the training officer should design an instrument in which to evaluate the performance of the individual firefighter, the individual engine companies performance as a team, and how the engine company's performance contributed to the over-all operation. Should errors occur while training, the organization should fully appreciate the fact that this is the most advantageous arena for errors; and correct error's by coaching and using positive re-enforcement.
