The Buzz on Technical Rescue: Program Management for Special Operations

Download this Podcast »

Host Bob Duemmel talks with Rob Schnepp about the "Hazardous Materials/Special Operations Program Management" pilot program at the National Fire Academy.

The six-day program, held earlier this year, was designed to meet the overwhelming needs of special operations team managers who prepare and lead responders in to the myriad of incidents that these teams face.

Schnepp shares some of the professional development skills that team leaders need and shares how they can work with all of the entities involved. Listen as the two discuss current model programs, case studies and how to keep teams trained and funded.
