Our special guest speaker will be Mr. Nick Martin, and his program is titled
 “Combat Ready” Firefighters

Many factors have served to increase complacency in today’s firefighters. A complacent attitude is the first step in a tragic calamity of errors that results in a fire extending beyond where it should have been controlled or preventable civilian or firefighter injuries and deaths. Firefighting is a “team sport” where we all count on each other to be ready when the moment comes. Firefighters often think that they are ”ready”. The scenarios discussed in this presentation will focus on the instructor’s personal experiences at several near-miss fireground incidents and will show how the presence or absence of a “combat ready” mindset influenced the outcome.  Discussion and tips will include:
  • Developing a “Combat Ready” Attitude
  • Destroying Complacency
  • Setup, layout, and use of PPE
  • Being “In Position”
  • “Combat Ready” Firefighting Skills
  • “Combat Ready” Engine Companies, Truck Companies, and IC’s
Reminder: there is no registration fee and lunch will be provided, however, remember to bring your Association membership card!
