FDTN's All-New FIRE COMBAT Training Experience

The Ultimate Fireground Learning Experience!

FireCombatFire Combat is a unique training experience offered by the Fire Department Training Network. In an effort to provide the most realistic fireground training possible for firefighters, FDTN has created a scenario-based course designed to provide response-based experience for company officers, firefighters, and apparatus operators.

The Fire Combat experience will be broken down into individual shifts (morning and afternoon blocks) where you will be assigned as a crew to either an engine company, truck company, or rescue company. Crews will change assignments at the start of each shift. To further refine the experience students will register for the course as the company officer, apparatus operator, or backstep firefighter. (6 Company Officer spots, 6 Apparatus Operator spots, 12 Backstep Firefighter spots, 3 Battalion Chief spots)

A Fire Combat shift will be very similar to a typical firehouse shift where you'll prepare for work, ready the apparatus, perform equipment maintenance, training, public education, or whatever else the crew may be assigned to do during the shift. In addition, you'll respond to multiple single- and multi-alarm fires during the shift. The intent…response-based muscle memory that will allow you to further refine and develop your overall fireground knowledge and experience.

The unique training experience will provide attendees the opportunity to respond to, and gain experience operating at, a significant number of working fires. Crews who register together will be assigned to the same company, if possible…a great way to enhance your skill set as a team!

Real companies, real-time dispatch, real-time fireground decision making, SOPS, training sessions, report writing…PLUS…multiple working fires to develop STREET EXPERIENCE! The most realistic fireground training experience available.
