Engine and Truck Company Ops With Light Staffing

Hosted by Mid-Columbia Fire and Rescue
1400 8th Street The Dalles, OR
October 12-13 , 2019 8:30M- 4:00PM

We all struggle with challenges. Light staffed fireground operations are no different. The good news is that there are strategies that can work to improve efficiency without compromising safety. This program will delve into two fireground functions, the Engine and the Truck.

By looking at the essential tasks that need to be identified, assigned and completed, light staffing does not have to equate with defeat. Students will experience best practices when faced with light staffed fireground scenarios. From command officers to the company officer down to the rookie firefighter all will benefit from this intense hands on program. Class size is limited. Full PPE required for all students!

Lead Instructor: Battalion Chief John McLoughlin
John is a 23 year veteran of the fire service working the past 20 years in Fort Lauderdale (FL) Fire-Rescue. Most recently he serves as an Operations Battalion Chief. Previously he served as Chief of Training.
