This week on The Firefighter Training Podcast we talk about how to build good tabletop exercises and the system of identifying a problem, gathering intel, training, tabletop, and then full scale exercise. The tabletop is not a test but 1 piece of a comprehensive training plan.
Also two very important “AskThe Chief” segments on self dispatch and the working relationship between career and on call departments in the same system and organization.
This week the Firefighter Training Podcast celebrates 6 years of podcasting on this St Patrick’s Day. Because of that we talk about 6 factors or considerations of being on an engine company, being on a ladder company, being and officer and being a firefighter.
This week The Firefighter Training Podcast discusses many aspects of the term controlling the response. I talk about the obvious driving and responding things, but more importantly I talk about controlling your personal response in difficult times, situations, and dealing with difficult people.
