Cold weather brings new challenges to the fire service. If you mix snow and ice with the cold, a new dimension is created.

Join host Douglas Cline and his guest, Daniel Bernardy, training officer for the Inver Grove Heights, MN, Fire Department, as they explore responses associated with cold and inclimate weather.

These two seasoned training officers will share real life incidents that will make you realize that there is a need for specialized training when you are responding in these type of conditions. From carbon monxide and chimney emergencies to a different mindset with winter driving, these conditions bring new rules to the game. Cline shares a near-miss that he was involved with.
