Tactical Fireground Simulations - Pilot Course Opportunity

December 10-11, 2016

The Office of Fire Prevention and Control is seeking students to attend a pilot offering of the new 12 hour course Tactical Fireground Simulations. The pilot will be held at the NYS Academy of Fire Science in Montour Falls on December 10-11, 2016. This course provides students with the ability to practice initial incident command functions on a fire emergency scene, utilizing real time computer based scenarios. It is not intended to teach command functions, but rather to reinforce theories previously learned and enable the student to practice in the command role. Through a series of computer simulations, students will serve as both a company level officer and initial incident commander. Find out more and register today.
