It has been said, “So goes First-Due, So goes the Incident!” Our incidents are changing in scope, impact, and complexity – and so must our ability to RAPIDLY survey and decide the right course of action when arriving first. Often, the smoke issuing from a building is the only clue that a hostile fire event will quickly trap or kill firefighters. “Reading Smoke” tells us how to read a fire and predict its progress – one of the essential skills for first-due. The “Art of First-Due” takes the reading smoke information to the next level and packages the information along with building and risk assessment to help the first-arriving Company Officer or Battalion Chief make the right decision. This is NOT your typical size-up class!
Great time was had by all at Moody Gardens at the Dinner.
Thank you Randy Weber, our US Congressman, for words of encouragement and praise to our firefighters. Big thanks for our County Commissioners and other Special guest. It was a great evening and lets make 2018 even better!
