    These are all some pretty good ideas. I'm even learning some stuff i've never heard of.

    In regards to the using playground equipment,while doing research for MAYDAY training i found this YouTube video below. What I did, was borrow their idea and incorporate MAYDAY parameters (stuck, lost, etc.) into the evolution and made the participants call a MAYDAY and practice giving L.U.N.A.R. reports. We just did the training last night and every member had a blast. Anywho.. below is the video if ya wanna check out how they do it. I thinks it's really awesome and innovative. Good luck.

    Any help would be appreciated.
    I'm with a vol department and we started using this online training group, that help in just about everything we need and tailor to whatever you wanting to accomplish, what i did is arrange a phone call and by email, explain to them what I wanted or trying to do, what our needs were, because everyones need is not the same. but anyway give them a try good luck....

    1. FF Survival is something you can absolutely never get enough of!!

    2. Although there can be some more 'advanced' subjects covered in a Safety and Survival class, the class is founded on using the principals and tactics learned in the earliest of FF1. If things such as raising ladders, etc are not being done satisfactorily in the safety and survival session, then you have some places to start for your next training sessions.

    If you need more info let me know. I completely feel your pain. We created the T/O position 2 years ago and I was the lucky one it was awarded to so I have dealt with the struggles of start up, etc of the position.

    Let no firefighters ghost say that their training let them down.
