Ops In Large Structures With Light Staffing
Hosted by the Hughestown FD
30 Center Street Hughestown, PA
November 9, 2019
8:30 AM – 4:00 PM

About the program:
Light staffed fireground operations are a challenge for most. It is even a bigger issue when faced with light staffing. Longer stretches, larger lines and even complex floor plans added to the challenge. A strong command presence with a clearly communicated strategy is crucial. Company officers must employ tactics that correlate to the strategy.

It will not be easy, but is doable. Companies working together to complete single tasks and effectively using every drop of manpower will make the difference. In this one day program students will be challenged to the limit while working within the confines of a large footprint structure. From command officers to company officer down to the rookie firefighter, all will benefit from this intense hands-on program. Note: Full PPE is required.
