In the above photo most would acknowledge it is training or drilling, but it is the latter word that is killing us. Undoubtedly someone will experience butthurt and say that it doesn’t matter what you call it, but I’m saying it does. The fire service is getting younger by the day, and in a lot of cases wiser but weaker. In the above photo the Officer or Senior Man is leading the training, and demonstrating the skill to be performed. The plan is to take the individual skill and break it down so that an understanding of what, why, and how are gained. When properly trained, you can then have a drill.
The end result of training is the performance in the picture. Feel free to add your thoughts.
