This course will teach the participant the basic principles of fire-line safety and in particular, those safety rules pertaining to avoiding a fire entrapment incident.
It is expected that if all fire-line safety rules and regulations are followed, the need may never arise for a fire fighter to have to unexpectedly resort to “last ditch” efforts to save their or other’s, lives.
However, it is well documented where unexpected fire behaviour does occur. In some of these documented cases, several lives have been lost.
It is the goal of this course to ensure that even when the “unexpected” occurs, the fire fighter will know what to do and where to go and in the end, be safe and be alive.
Note: The British Columbia Forest Service – Protection Branch, no longer issue Fire Shelters to their fire crews. Therefore, all fire fighting strategies factor this into the emergency; withdraw and escape procedures as there is no fire shelter available.
It should be noted and remembered that most fireline emergency incidents are a result of someone (or a whole crew) not following ALL of the safe work procedures.
Upon successful completion of this course the participant will know how to avoid fire entrapment and in the worst case scenario, will be taught how to survive fire entrapment.
This course is targeted toward any person who may be involved professionally (their primary job description) fighting wildland fires.
