A often used old quote in the fire service is, "so goes the first line, so goes the fire", well there is more than the first line, but the initial actions at an incident more often than no dictate the successful out come of an incident. This class will look in depth at the initial actions, Tactics and Operation Decisions of the first Officer, Acting Officers/Firefighters on scene and what can and should be done to prepare your crew. This a high energy class with a ton of great information!
