Fireground Responsibilities of the Incident Commander

The goal of NYSAFC’s free 16-hour Fireground Responsibilities of the Incident Commander training program is to assist fire departments in meeting the Best Practices for Incident Commanders as outlined by the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services Office of Fire Prevention and Control and referenced by the New York State Department of Labor Public Employee Safety and Health Bureau. Through lecture and discussion along with class activities and case studies, students will learn and apply the principles of fireground safety and supervision. This training series is being delivered through a grant from the New York State Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Training and Education Program. Class size is limited for this free training, so register early!
