    Default ISO Training

    So in order to satisfy ISO requirements for structural fire training, does this training need to be specifically structured, or can it be logged and kept track of that way?

    If 3-4 people decided to take ladders out and practice with ladders, if they logged it, whould that not qualify as structural fire training? Inspections, would that not qualify ie building costruction, fire spread, etc?

    We have a department training roster with everyone's name on it. If there is any training done, even it is a one on one session with a probie, or a small group activity, we document it. Document everything that can be considered training, whether it be fire, EMS, hazmat, etc. etc. etc.

    That is what we are doing now - just trying to fine tune the process.

    Thanks!

    Firehouse software has a "template" for documenting iso training. They (ISO)are picky and want every hing in their required catagories. Dont just put "hose stream" for instance. If it is at night, be sure it is labled "night drill"- you light it up with your service truck in addition to using your engine , it can be a :multi company" drill. And unless things have changed -ISO likes 3 hour drills
