Scott Higgins

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved, Captain Scott Higgins.  Scoot, known to many, was the former President of CMFAS.  He was also an instructor for the Pumps class for many years with us.  As a captain on Winslow FD, he was an outstanding leader in our organization as well as a co-worker, brother in the service, and the best friend you could have.  His insight, thoughtfulness and integrity will linger in our lives.  His passing will leave a void in our community as well as in our hearts.  He will be missed by many, and loved by all.   Rest in Peace brother Scott.  We will miss you.  Our thoughts and prayers are will Scott's family and the entire Winslow Fire Department.

Commanding Initial Fire Attack

Using simulations, fire officers and senior firefighters apply the techniques of size-up, initial reports, identifying fire conditions upon arrival, predicting fire travel, conducting a risk/benefit analysis, closing operational modes, assigning initial fire control companies, and resource evaluation. Program will focus on: 1) Pre-incident preparation: command coaching, crew resource management, fire service changes, operational leadership, strategy & tactics, NIMS/ICS/fire ground command, 2) Commanding the initial fire attack: initial arrival reports, apparatus placement, size-up/8 fire ground factors/RECEO, risk/benefit analysis, predicting fire travel/reading smoke, operational modes, incident priorities, making operational assignments, evaluation of resources, and incident termination.
