Mayday Event – Fryeburg, ME
May 18, 2018 - May 20, 2018
Hosted by the Fryeburg Fire Department 520 Main St. Fryeburg, ME
May 18-19-20, 2018 May 18 starting at 6:30 PM 19 & 20 at 7:30 AM
MAYDAY EVENT is designed to bring all the players who have a vested interest in firefighter survival to a comprehensive training event.
Learning the hands-on rapid intervention techniques and bringing a MAYDAY event to a successful conclusion are two entirely different things! There are countless trained, properly equipped and adequately staffed rapid intervention crews around the nation who are being set up for failure without a properly trained officer who will be charged with the responsibility of managing a MAYDAY.
MAYDAY EVENT will prepare incident commander and fire officers to show strong leadership skills when a MAYDAY is called. At the same time, firefighters, company officers, RIT members and Supervisors will learn how to execute when a MAYDAY is called and a rapid intervention team is deployed.
This program will culminate with challenging, real-life MAYDAY scenarios that will take on a life of their own. This program is physically and mentally demanding.
Ron Richards, Fire Chief (ret.) from the Commonwealth of PA will lead the program’s command officer training component.
EVD Kristian Short, Baltimore City Fire Department, Ladder 8 will oversee the hands-on skills.
NOTE: This is a closed enrollment program. For Details Contact: Chief Andrew Dufresne at 207-935-2615.
