Preparation for Initial Company Operations
February 1, 2016 - February 4, 2016
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This course is designed to develop the decision making skills needed by Company Officers (CO) to accomplish assigned tactics at structure fires. All activities and scenarios used in this course are based on structure fires. As a Company Officer with the real possibility of being the first to arrive at an incident, the CO’s initial decisions will have an impact throughout the entire incident. It is vital that they be able to make good management decisions that have a favorable impact on the eventual outcome. In addition to a possible role as the initial Incident Commander (IC), the CO may well be assigned a subordinate position within the ICS organization. CO’s need to have a clear understanding of the system, the position they are assigned, and their role in the organization if they are to function effectively and help make the system work.
This course is specifically designed for newly appointed Company Officers, for firefighters who may have acting Company Officers responsibilities or who want to become a Company Officer. This course is an excellent review for experienced Company Officers.
