Fire Suppression Tactics & Strategy

The Fire Suppression Tactics and Strategy course is designed to provide the student with a general knowledge of fire behavior and facts related to the theories, practice methods, responsibilities, sequence and application of fireground strategy and tactics.

The course provides the student with an understanding of strategic planning and tactical considerations in an attempt to cause the performance of each fireground task to come together in a winning effort. The intent of this course is to develop proficiency in recognizing a fire’s degree and potential, making proper extinguishing-related decision, and evaluating the results. Many times emergency response personnel are involved in a fire-related incident where the solution(s) seems unattainable. Often the solution is in the basics.

This course is recommended to all emergency service personnel.
