Flashover Recognition
Participants will gain an enhanced knowledge of fire behavior with an emphasis on factors leading to the potential of flashover. Firefighters will be introduced to flashover conditions in a controlled environment.

Vent/Enter/Search
VES is widely misunderstood and underutilized. When used properly, VES is the safest and most effective way to search a building. Participants will learn how to utilize VES tactics in a safe and efficient manner to maximize effectiveness on the fireground, and increase the potential of saving trapped victims.

Block 2 (Sunday, 8am-5pm) | 16 total slots available – Cancelled due to a lack of interest

Thermal Imaging Concepts
Course will cover basic thermal imaging techniques with a focus on hands on training. Participants will be exposed to operational terms, uses, and limitations of thermal imagers.

Rapid Intervention Team Basic Principles
Participants will learn how to prepare for and respond to firefighter rescue situations and mayday transmission with a focus on practical skills, such as RIT search, firefighter packaging, drags and carries, window removals, and the Denver Drill.

Please share this information with members of your department. We are looking forward to an excellent training event! For questions or concerns, please contact North Lenoir Fire & Rescue Training Captain Steven Miller, 252-939-5324.
