Free Fire/EMS Response to Civil Unrest Program Available

Share |

The Firefighters Support Foundation’s (FSF) free training program, Fire/EMS Response to Civil Unrest, is available for download. While current civil unrest events are making news now, FD and EMS units are playing a greater role in responding to them. This program consists of a 40-minute video program and an accompanying 46-slide PowerPoint program. Firefighters and EMTs can view the video material with the PowerPoint file acting as their hard copy notes, or they can use either resource independently.

The program covers:

  • Types of events
  • Dispatch issues
  • Body armor
  • The effects of alcohol
  • Coordination with other agencies and the police
  • Approach strategies
  • The potential for violence
  • The NFPA mandate
  • Lessons learned from previous events
  • Why no jurisdiction is too small
  • Proven tactics

The presenter is August Vernon, the well-known Subject Matter Expert on Emergency Management issues.

The PowerPoint and video portions of the program can be used by any agency or member either as-is, or as a basis from which to construct training modules or presentations of their own.
