Texas department goes all out sharing lessons learned from their own close call.
In a technology advanced age where close call videos have the shelf life of milk it is awesome to see a department take a close call or other near-miss event and openly share the incident and lessons learned.
Thanks to a mention on Facebook we came across the Flower Mound (TX) Fire Department Mayday Training Files. It’s not just a link to a sub-page or PDF but an entire site created around a June 2011 fire that had led to a captain and firefighter becoming disoriented and calling a mayday.
The site is full of video, photos, audio, run reports, injury details and more.
Take a look (click the image below) and share among your shift, department and with others.
Hopefully this encourages other departments to not pay attention to all the keyboard commanders and anonymous experts, and openly share their lessons learned as well.
