The case for seeking effective outside firefighter training
Traditional in-house training can become repetitive and uninspiring, but by seeking out different avenues for outside training, firefighters can reinsert vigor into the learning process
Outside training exercises and events can be a frustrating and difficult part of any fire service career or department. Training external to your fire shift is always scheduled at a bad time and is never expedient to you, your department or your family schedule. Unfortunately, current social demands and community expectations make outside training critically important to the survival of an independent and progressive fire service. Learn how to choose outside training that will expand your skill set and benefit your department.
