In Station Training Drills

CCVFRA companies are invited to join Companies 1 and 2 for their in station training drills. The goal is to complete the drills on the 4th Thursday night of each month. The start time for drills will vary between 6:30 & 7:00 pm. The drills will likely be approximately 1.5-2 hours in length so as we do not over burden anyone due to work schedules for those members attending. Also, as mentioned - we will alternate months hosting so that each department can provide the instructor or contact person for the drill. As the program develops, other topics may be planned for future dates.

Strategy & Tactics for Initial Company Operation (STICO)


Dec 3, 2016 0800-1700 Dec 4, 2016 0800-1700

•Course Description:
Changes in modern building design and materials have altered the nature of structure fires, with modern homes able to reach flashover eight times faster than homes built 50 years ago. Firefighters are being challenged by different fire ground hazards due to today’s more open floor plans and the use of synthetic materials in furniture and building products. These changes have made structure fires more deadly than ever before and call into question traditional firefighting tactics. With what has been brought to light by UL and NIST, this NFA-STICO training program provides an educational opportunity through a combination of lecture, illustrations, group discussions/activities, case studies, and computer generated simulations. This program is essential for all levels of fire service personnel. It provides the necessary information and basic skills to recognize how and why science and the fire service have joined forces to adjust and enhance firefighting tactics. Firefighter safety and building occupant survivability are our primary responsibilities and key elements for this training program.
