A must for all aspiring officers
How to Access the IAFF Fire ground Safety Awareness Course
Rapid Intervention Crew
My department just mandated that every member complete the IAFF Fire ground Safety Awareness Course. I can honestly say that this is the BEST TRAINING I HAVE GONE THROUGH IN RECENT MEMORY. It’s a video based learning program that you can do anywhere you have internet access. It’s through the International and there is absolutely NO CHARGE. I believe it should be mandatory for ALL firefighters. It’s very credible and really gets you thinking about how to react when the inevitable MAYDAY call comes in. It also trains you what to do when you are the one who is in trouble. Below are the directions of how to access the program.
