Flashover Friday: Training Division

How do you feel about your training division?

What do you think a training division should do?

Who should be in training?

Tips for a successful training program?


  • Larry says:

    How?—I believe the dedication and focus is lacking. “All talk, no action”

    What?—The training division should get the “entire” department involved. Everybody has something to share, no matter the years of service.

    Who?—Someone with a strong desire for the job and a strong desire for seeing their fellow brothers/sisters succeeding. He or she must have great people skills and be open minded.

    Tips?—Be open minded, Listen to all the ranks, Have a game plan and share the game plan with the troops

    Training What????

    Get involved, get engaged, as a Training Officer, you are responsible for every member on your department. If you do the SSDD all the time bad things will happen and you will be on Murphy’s list!
    Train to Survive Everyday!

Shortly after founding the site Marques spoke with several trusted friends and ask them to come on board and contribute also. Firefighter Basics is a dedicated group of firefighters who strive everyday to practice what they preach about Training, Safety, and Tradition.  We can be reached at firefighterbasics@gmail.com

Early in my firefighting career I was taught any decision you make is better than no decision. I had a 20 year career in the USAF with that motto and never had a problem.

Very well said and so true. It does seem like we've lost the trait of taking care of the small things. Thanks for sharing and I’m sharing this will my entire department. Be safe.

Getting Back 2 the Basics: Why did you ever leave them pt. II
I can't believe people would not care enough about their own lives to not ware all of the required and provided Turnout Gear. I mean, what are you going to do when entering and starting your search, STOP and sit down and say, let's just stay out here for a while until it cools ?…
