Code 3 Podcast: Teaching ‘bread-and-butter’ tactics across generations
Stephen Rhine and Scott Orr discuss the importance of fundamental skills and how to reach all generations in training
If you’ve listened to this show for any length of time, you know realistic training scenarios – and sometimes the lack of them – are a hot button issue for me.
Learning the fundamentals is the key to skill-building later in a career. That’s why it’s so important to focus on training for bread-and-butter operations – those common skills that are sometimes taken for granted. But how do we develop a program that covers this ground when we’re working with multiple generations that all learn differently?
In this episode of the Code 3 Podcast, we’re talking with Lt. Stephen Rhine about how to accomplish this. Rhine has been with the FDNY for 17 years. He’s also the training coordinator and former captain of the Roslyn Volunteer Fire Department in New York. He’s a certified New York State Fire Instructor and a Haz-Mat Tech Level 1. And he’s a PIO with the FDNY Incident Management Team.
