Advanced Structure Search - Fraternal Order Of Leatherheads Society
This class will be hands on real-world scenarios that will challenge students to push themselves to their limits. The goal is to provide so much information, reps, skill, and knowledge that when returning to their departments, they can pass on the knowledge to make the difference in decreasing civilian fire fatalities. The whole purpose of our job, right? Students will perform forcible entry, VES beyond the door and primary searches locating/removing victims in zero visibility conditions. Students will encounter different size victims, different floor surfaces and techniques that will make them successful in each scenario. Only question left to ask; are you ready to dive in?
