Master the Most Impactful Action on the Fireground

Master the most impactful action on the fireground - getting a line on the fire - quickly.

Engine company operations may be the backbone of the fire service - but that doesn’t mean they’re simple. This program combines classroom and hands-on training to
deliver street-smart, fireground proven tactics and techniques for
rapidly placing attack lines in service and getting water on the fire.

This training program gives firefighters street-smart and practical application of modern firefighting science, with loads of real-world tactics for making an engine company more effective. We’ll cover the engine company in detail, from setting up the rig and crews, all the way to wrapping up from the fire.

This class is available as a 4-hour online course, 1-3 days of hands-on training, or a hybrid combination of both. See below for details.

What People Are Saying

This class was very informative and went further into the jobs that are important for a good engine company
William Addis
As the captain of an engine company, this material is priceless. I study the job through a variety of formats, but learned a lot and certainly had some of my own practices both affirmed and challenged through this course. Unlike so many podcasts and videos out there, this is information heavy and tactically rich. This isn't a conversation or tossing out ideas, this is organized training and education. If you're going to do online fire training, this is how you do it.
Chandler Moore
great class! really helped bring the spark to me and just want to go out and train. Can't wait to sign up the next class.
Zacharie Correll

Tim Cline
Compact video series jammed with great information and insight. I thoroughly enjoyed the videos and the information shared.
Charles Kilbel
it was great to see that we are doing a lot of things right and how to update or change a few thigns to make us even better. Great content delivered by a great instructor.
Craig Delaney
As a 27 year career Captain this class helps me stay motivated to not get lazy and not to retire in place. This motivation allows me to encourage the younger generation to always be their best.
Monte Cockerham
Really liked the method and platform. I'll be signing up for more. Although, 1 week to complete a course is not enough
Mark Matheson
This was a excellent put together online training. It hit a lot of good points and broke it down into easy to understand pieces.
Dominick Mangone
Great! I found a majority of the points BC Martin went over were in line with the way I believe and have been instructing for years. Thank you, BC Martin, for a great and understandable presentation.
