Central Maine Fire Attack School

9. 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.
