Salvage and Overhaul

Salvage and Overhaul

The three tactical priorities of fireground operations are life safety, incident stabilization, and property conservation. Salvage and overhaul affect all three. In this module, you’ll learn how to conduct salvage and overhaul operations in a safe and thorough manner. Content in this module is aligned with the NFPA 1001, Standards for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications, Fire Fighter I: 4.3.8, 4.3.10, 4.3.13, and 4.3.14, “Fireground Operations.”

Search and Rescue

"Fighting fires is a well-orchestrated event carried out by a highly trained team. The procedures and techniques that make up this module are critical for the survival of the rescuers as well as the victims. This module will cover search and rescue techniques, victim removal techniques, and choosing a dangerous situation response. Content in this module is aligned with the NFPA 1001, Standards for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications, Job Performance Requirements, Fire Fighter I: 4.3.9, “Fireground Operations,” and Fire Fighter II: 5.3.2, “Fireground Operations.” "

Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus

Self-contained breathing apparatus, or SCBA, provides respiratory protection so firefighters can operate safely in all kinds of hazardous environments. In this module, you will learn about SCBA for fireground operations, and how to operate, troubleshoot, and care for it. Content in this module is aligned with the NFPA 1001 Standards for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications, Fire Fighter I: 4.3.1, 4.3.5, 4.3.10, 4.3.11, and 4.5.1, “Fireground Operations;” and Fire Fighter II: 5.5.4, “Fire and Life Safety Initiatives, Preparedness, and Maintenance.” It also is compliant with components of NFPA 1500 Standard on Fire Department Occupational Safety and Health and NFPA 1981 Standard on Open-Circuit Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus for Emergency Services.
Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

Fire and EMS personnel come to work ready to face any call that comes their way. When facing a difficult call, resting at the station between calls, or interacting with other personnel, there may be times that an individual is made to feel uncomfortable in their working environment. Every employee deserves to work in an environment free from harassment. In this course, we’ll examine what constitutes sexual harassment, ways to prevent it, and how to cultivate a safe working environment.
Size-Up for Safety and Effectiveness

Size-Up for Safety and Effectiveness

This class will examine why the strategy chosen by first-arriving companies and the tactics they perform can be entirely appropriate in the initial stages of a firefighting operation but may become ineffective and unreasonably dangerous later in an incident. Learn why size-up isn’t just performed on arrival but must continue throughout the duration of an incident; why size-up must be performed from two perspectives--inside and outside a fire building; why a red flag should go up when an inside size-up and outside size-up are not in agreement; and why experienced firefighters do not operate at every phase of a firefighting operation with the same strategy, tactics, or level of risk. This class will also examine factors to consider in an ongoing size-up that continuously evaluates the risk to civilians and firefighters vs. the intended benefits.
Support of Technical Rescue Teams

Support of Technical Rescue Teams

Firefighters need to be prepared to assist and support many types of rescue operations. It is important to have the skills, knowledge, and abilities to support secondary rescue units. In this module, you will review the ways which firefighters provide support to rescue operations, distinguish between the different forms of response and how they change based on environmental and structural factors, and describe proper rescue procedures. Content in this module is aligned with the NFPA 1001, Standards for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications, Fire Fighter II: 5.1.1, “General Knowledge Requirements;” and 5.4.2, “Rescue Operations.”
