The busiest tours you're likely to encounter during your career…
Fire 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 or truck 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.
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.
