This explanation of risk management is intended for firefighters who need a rapid and effective method for identifying and mitigating dangers on the fire ground.
Introduction to Incident Command and Control 1.50 This course is based on the National Incident Management System (NIMS). This course uses lessons to describes a phased process for the implementation of NIMS management characteristics into an Incident Command System. This phased process is a common-sense approach to emergency scene incident command based on the typical timeline for fireground development. It is important that you review local municipal law and organizational policies for implementing Incident Command. This course presents a system for implementing incident command during emergency operations. Incident Command does not have to be implemented using this system however, it needs to be implemented using a system.
Introduction to Fireground Size-up 2.00 This course is an extensive introduction to fireground size-up and is a prerequisite for all other Vigilant size-up courses. This lesson defines the term size up and describes its purpose in fireground operations. The elements of a proper size-up are defined and described. The course introduces a five-step procedure for implementing the size-up process on the fireground. Each step of this procedure is defined and described with an explanation of the elements that are identified during each step. The lesson concludes with an overall summary and final evaluation.
Introduction to Fireground Communications 0.50 This course defines communication and identifies five components of a fireground communication model. Each component is described in detail and a procedure for implementing the components is reviewed. The different types of common fireground communications are described and examples of each are given.
Initiating an Emergency Response 0.50 This course describes a procedure for responding to the report of an emergency. This course will describe how to initiate an emergency response when receiving alarms via the firehouse non-emergency-phone, a walk up to quarters, and reporting an emergency that occurs in the firehouse. This course reviews the skills required to use equipment to receive, record, and transmit an incoming alarm. This course also includes several scenarios during which the student uses a simulated procedure to initiate a response to several types of reported emergencies. The clock time for this course is approximately one-half hours.
Ground Cover Fires 1.50 This course is an introductory level course that introduces the basic concepts of fighting fires that involve natural ground cover.
