Training Guides


This Training Guide should be mandatory reading for every firefighter. The information is of unparalleled importance. If a firefighter does not understand the limitations of his personal protective equipment, then he is at tremendous risk and places his entire company at tremendous risk. Understanding the limitations and capabilities of personal protective equipment should be the first field-oriented training a firefighter receives. J. Randall Lawson does an outstanding job describing the effect that heat has on gear and how the unprepared and uneducated firefighter can be burned.

The care and maintenance of gear is critical to its performance. Every firefighter should understand and be able to do a basic inspection of his gear and should be required to perform the inspection regularly. Gear should be routinely cleaned, inspected, and repaired when necessary. Mitch Lopez provides an excellent explanation of the NFPA 1851 standard and how to make that standard a reality for your organization.

The purchase of personal protective clothing is arguably one of the most critical functions an officer can be responsible for. Knowing how gear works, the different layers of gear, and the types of layers on the market requires diligent and comprehensive research. Many factors come into play in the selection of the appropriate gear, and Andrew Pompe provides the direction every officer needs who is delegated this incredibly important function.
