FF269 Decision Making


The Decision Making course is designed to be a student driven learning environment. The students are placed in 5 different situations likely to challenge firefighters and fire officers. Students are immersed into the situations through highly interactive small group discussions, ethical and moral discussion, role playing, fast pace tactical decision making challenges, and practical application exercises. Each segment then concludes with a learning element form court cases or actual fire scenes to see if the recommendations would have had a favorable outcome. Through the teaching style the instructor facilitates interaction and challenges each of the students to reach outside of their comfort zone through discovery learning, rather than the classic lecture and direction format. The end result will broaden the view of the student from the perspective of situational awareness. They will leave the training event with a greater appreciation of what a Duty to Act means. They will see a deeper impact of the sequence of events from day to day policies and procedures and how they may directly impact both liability and life safety. The ultimate desire is to better align all ranks, working together to take ownership in the direction and decisions made on emergency scenes and non-emergency both at the fire station and off duty.
