Balancing Safety and Realism in Live Fire Training

Share this

The need for safe firefighter training must be balanced with sufficient challenge to prepare firefighters for the unpredictable nature of the fire ground of the future. Training must not be so controlled as to give firefighters a false sense of security, nor can it disregard established safety procedures for the sake of increased realism.

To maintain an effective cadre of firefighters and officers, the fire service must find new and dynamic ways to train personnel to act in a safe, decisive manner that best supports the fire service’s mission to protect lives, property, and the environment.

Fire Chiefs must constantly challenge themselves by asking: How are we preparing our future generation of firefighters to meet the challenges of tomorrow?
