Joueyman Series: Firefighter Survival

  • Lee Broadbant Training Center 58577 McNulty Way Saint Helens, OR, 97051 United States (map)

The Journeyman Firefighter Survival course is intended to reduce the number of firefighters killed or injured while performing their duties on the fire ground. It is an 8-hour class delivered by the Randy Carpenter Firefighter Search, Survival, and Rescue School for the First Whip F.O.O.L.S.  

The Journeyman Firefighter Survival course was developed in the continuing effort to reduce the number of firefighter injuries and fatalities that occur on an annual basis. This course will supply you with a greater understanding of the need for situational awareness, firefighter survival skills, and the technical survival skills to help you avoid committing fatal errors on the fire ground.  Avoiding situations that could cause you to become lost, trapped, or injured is the best way to prevent tragedies at a fire scene. The Journeyman Firefighter Survival course will aid in preventing firefighter emergencies by teaching personnel to be resourceful when facing dangerous situations.

During this class, you will gain a greater understanding of fire fighter survival terminology, developing a survival attitude, increasing situational awareness, and being trained in problem-solving techniques so you can become more self-reliant in an emergency. Case studies will be reviewed to outline factors common in many line-of-duty deaths (LODDs) across the nation.  You must effectively complete the class in its entirety to receive a course completion certificate.
