Firefighter Forcible Entry Tutorial (Windows Only)
Many facilities have windows that are specially designed to protect occupants from glass fragments and debris that may result from explosions, high winds, gun shots, physical attack, and other severe events. These special windows are generally harder to break than typical windows. This may cause some difficulties for an unsuspecting and unprepared occupant or firefighter attempting to vent or clear a window. This training presents background information on blast, hurricane, and ballistic resistant windows. Methods and issues associated with clearing such windows are presented. Students may evaluate their knowledge by taking the examination and are eligible for a certificate of training should they pass the test.
IAFF Firefighter Survival Awareness (about 6 hour program but worth it)
The purpose of the Fire Ground Survival program is to ensure that training for Mayday prevention and Mayday operations are consistent between all fire fighters, company officers and chief officers. Fire fighters must be trained to perform potentially life-saving actions if they become lost, disoriented, injured, low on air or trapped. These training exercises must be consistent throughout the fire service. Funded by the IAFF and assisted by a grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through the Assistance to Firefighters (FIRE Act) grant program, our comprehensive Fire Ground Survival training program applies the lessons learned from fire fighter fatality investigations conducted by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and has been developed by a committee of subject matter experts from the IAFF, the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) and NIOSH
