ON DEMAND COURSE NOW AVAILABLE! 

NEW AND UPDATED FOR 2021 

MASTER THE MOST IMPACTFUL ACTION ON THE FIREGROUND.

There is nothing more impactful than getting a line on the fire - but the attack line is not magic. Engine company operations may be the backbone of the fire service - but that doesn’t mean they’re simple. This program will focus on the core mission of getting a line on the fire, quickly, and what it takes to make that happen.

This program includes 4+ hours of highly engaging training shot in professional 4K video quality, consisting of concepts and content that have been developed over years and delivered to fire departments around North America - and all based in real practical fireground experience.

We will discuss the engine company in detail, from setting up the rig and crews, all the way to wrapping up from the fire. If you want real training that helps you achieve a higher level of firefighting while igniting passion for the job, you're in the right place.
