Those fine folks at Co.34 are bringing the FDIC experience to the Washington, D.C. area. Thanks to co-sponsors, the Chillum-Adelphi Fire Department is delivering a day long training session by Ray McCormack, with the focus being on engine company operations (We can only imagine the surprise by those on L.28 who may have thought they converted him to the dark side).
For $40.00 you get “The Dirty Dozen“, 12 errors engine companies make; “Line Boss“, details about the crucial decisions engine company officers have to make; and breakfast and lunch. Plus, it’s a safe bet you won’t hear terms such as ‘crew resource management’, and ‘victim survivability profile.’
The event is being held 12 April, 2010 at 0830 hours at the George Washington Masonic Temple in Alexandria, Virginia. As a bonus, keep your directions so you can return in May for another classic event. Register here.
Be sure to give him feedback on Urban Firefighter Magazine as well!
