    Default April 1, 2006 Firefighter Safety Seminar

    Northwood Firefighters Association

    Presents

    First Annual Firefighter Safety Seminar



    April 1st, 2006 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

    Northwood High School 700 Lemoyne Rd. Northwood, OH


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Scheduled Presentations:



    Morning Session-
    Accountability-Fact or Fiction (2 Hours)
    Mike Smith, Deputy Chief (ret.) District of Columbia Fire & Rescue
    Each year 100 firefighters are killed on the fireground. This presentation will demonstrate how to cut that figure significantly. It will involve all of the facets of safe fireground behaviors. A must for all members and ranks of the fire service.



    Engine Company Operations, Are You Safe On the Line? (2 Hours)
    Robert "Butch" Cobb, Battalion Chief Jersey City, NJ FD
    Engine company operations on the fire ground sounds simple enough; stretch some lines and aim a stream of water at the fire. This seminar examines the important tactical objectives of the engine company. Successful engine company operations begin with size up, not only for the officer but for all members of the crew. A method of assisting the 1st due engine company utilizing a simple "Information Gathering System" is discussed. Are light weight truss construction, energy efficient windows and older buildings "yellow flags" in your size up? Find out why they should be. Correct size up will determine initial tactics and strategy and will set in motion the "incident game plan". The engine company's rescue plan will also be discussed. Chief Cobb's Presentation will take you through the components and skills that make a successful engine company stand out on the fireground.


    Afternoon Session-

    Firefighter Close Calls, Injury and Death Prevention: Applying the Required Courage to Effect the Needed Changes (4 Hours)
    Chief Billy Goldfeder, E.F.O., Firehouse Magazine Columnist "CLOSE CALLS", Battalion Chief-Loveland Symmes, OH FD

    Chief Billy Goldfeder presents a multimedia presentation reviewing fireground events and most specifically, the LESSONS LEARNED so that these incidents (and those involved) donít ever become forgotten. This high energy, direct, frank and professionally and respectfully presented program provides the attendees an excellent opportunity to learn how to EFFECT CHANGE at their own departments when returning home...by learning about the tragic events that OTHER FD's have gone through...so they donít happen again! Change is NEVER easy and the "it wonít happen here" attitude is amongst numerous warning signs that it is "just a matter of time" until something bad occurs. This program will provide attendees with ideas and examples to positively effect changeó potentially saving "their own" firefighters' lives. The program will also focus hard on the relationship between the fire officer and the issues of being "liked" vs. the ability of the fire officer to do the job... and send their firefighters home to their loved ones-alive and well.

    Do you know if your FD is on the mailing list for the BGSU State Fire School in Bowling Green, OH? If you are on the list, we should be sending one out to your department. If not, or you are not sure you can email it to me or to the email address list in the original post and we will make sure we get one to you or your FD.

    We are planning on sending it out to everyone on the BGSU list and also the Lifeflight list...... I thinkk maybe the NOVFA list, also

    I've got an Excel file of the contact info for every Ohio FD if you want it. You should be able to sort it by county if you want to target a certain region for your mailing. It'll work for mail merge to print labels as well.

    Exclamation

    Brothers and Sisters,

    If you are able to attend, please sign up for the Northwood seminar by
    Monday, March 20th.

    The cost is only $55.00 which is much less than many
    comparable seminars.

    It is a rare opportunity to have 3 outstanding
    nationally known presenters in this area but unfortunately because of the
    low number of registrants, NFD is considering canceling the seminar.

    I have been told that the go/no go decision will be made Tuesday morning at 10 AM so if you have been considering attending and have put it off please
    register or send an e-mail to northwoodfireseminar@hotmail.com or call Chief
    Tom Pack at 419-690-1647 by tomorrow evening (3/20/06)

    The seminar is a GO!!!! We still hope to get more registrants. I don't think you can beat the price for these top notch speakers.
