Live Fire Awareness

This 16-hour course addresses the problems associated with conducting live fire training evolutions and how we in the fire service can begin to build a culture of safety in our training programs. The course reviews legal aspects that must be considered when conducting live fire training and presents an educational philosophy that must be accepted to change attitudes about training in the fire service. The course includes a comprehensive review of NFPA 1403, Standard on Live Fire Training Evolutions, and is intended for firefighters that may play a role in an NFPA 1403 training evolution. It fills one of the prerequisites for Master Live Fire Instructor, a course that is currently under development. Student manuals are provided.
