Safe Firefighting: First Things First, is the initial orientation and training for volunteer firefighters who will not be going inside to fight a structure fire. It will empower the volunteer firefighter with the ability to assist on most exterior firefighting and emergency rescue operations. At this level, the firefighter will need tight supervision and will only have the capabilities to assist the next two levels of firefighters trained in this program. By providing condensed entry-level training to the newest firefighter recruit, the fire department can get personnel safely involved in some fire department emergency operations sooner, while you complete your more advanced training. This approach is a great help for fire departments that are in dire need of personnel, particularly volunteer departments.
