Nothing can be so chaotic as a firefighter in trouble that calls a Mayday. The fire service spends a lot of time and resources in training firefighters and task level officers in techniques and methods for calling a Mayday and surviving those situations—as it should be! However, there has been little developed and created in the way of real, meaningful training for incident commanders to hone their skills in handling a Mayday.
This podcast will discuss, generally, about commanding a Mayday. It is part 1 of a multi-part series that will focus on the IC and his/her role in handling the Mayday for a successful outcome.
Our special guest for this series is Assistant Chief Joe Pronesti of the Elyria, OH Fire Department. He speaks from experiences and his in-depth training.
Chief Pronesti will be speaking at FDIC International 2017 on
on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 08:00-12:00 in Rooms 132-133.
Below are some examples of what Chief Pronesti is doing and offering.
