    Default Training video links?

    I recent did an entire drill using "real" firefighting videos that I found on Youtube.com. I edited out all of the "glorified" music videos that people submitted but used the ones that showed actual firefighting and rescue operations. I found some that showed the good, the bad and the ugly of what we do (and shouldn't do).

    Anyhow, I showed each video and allowed everybody in the room to comment on what they thought was good or bad about each one and how we can apply that to what we do in our department. All in all, I think it went well. The biggest advantage is that you are using actual videos of real incidents, which keeps everybody's interest and helps create some good discussion.

    I'm updating my presentation and am looking for some new material. Does anybody know of any other good sites that might have some good submitted material on them? This may help not only myself but others that are doing the same thing.

    Thanks in advance.

    Also, there are a lot of videos in these forums. Just do a search for video and that should keep you busy for awhile.

    No problem. Being a small department which doesn't get that many fires, it's hard to get some hands-on training. Video is the next best thing in my opinion.
