Commanding the Mayday: Part 1
Nothing can be so chaotic as a firefighter in trouble that calls a Mayday. The fire service spends a lot of time and resources in training firefighters and task level officers in techniques and methods for calling a Mayday and surviving those situations---as it should be! However, there has been little developed and created in the way of real, meaningful training for incident commanders to hone their skills in handling a Mayday. This podcast will discuss, generally, about commanding a Mayday. It is part 1 of a multi-part series that will focus on the IC and his/her role in handling the Mayday for a successful outcome. Our special guest for this series is Assistant Chief Joe Pronesti of the Elyria, OH Fire Department. He speaks from experiences and his in-depth training. Chief Pronesti will be speaking at FDIC International 2017 on Size-Up and Command for the Small Department: How to Avoid Being Lost in the Fog of the Fireground on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 08:00-12:00 in Rooms 132-133.
