S-100 Basic Fire Suppression & Safety Course Info


The only government approved and fully recognized S-100 Basic Fire Suppression and Safety courses are those that are conducted over a two day time frame.

We fully support that fact as there is far too much material to cover in one day - even a very long day. Your safety and welfare is on the line here and it behooves all instructors to present a full and complete course.

This course is not offered as a web based program because there is a second day of field training, which is then followed by the written exam.

We no longer offer any wildlandfire field training courses.  However, by clicking on "Instructor List" in the left side yellow Nav. Bar, you may find an instructor living near you who can help with your training needs.  

Good Luck

Doug


LOOK!

Below is an ONLINE 

Fire Entrapment Avoidance and Safety Course 

that "goes" well with any wildland fire safety course.  This IS available online.


CHECK IT OUT!


This informative wildland fire safety course covers a lot of the basics that seem to be often forgotten or not given much attention to. (based on the number of burn-overs that are still occurring)

This course is based on;

L. A. A. C. E. S

  • LOOKOUTS
  • ANCHOR POINT
  • AWARENESS (SITUATIONAL)
  • COMMUNICATIONS
  • ESCAPE ROUTES (MIN OF 2)
  • SAFETY ZONES

 S-185 Fire Entrapment Avoidance and Safety  Course

The S-185 course is mandatory annually for the forest fire fighters working under contract to the British Columbia Wildland Fire Management Branch.

We believe ANY wildland firefighter or any person working in the forest will benefit by taking this short but detailed course in how to avoid fire entrapment.  It is also a great refresher for the more advanced fire management courses.

If you feel you may also require this course - check it out.


FYI

NO PROVINCE WIDE DATA BASE FOR S-100 or S-100A CARD HOLDERS

At this time and not in the foreseeable future, is there or will there be a Province Wide Data Base for persons who have successfully completed the S-100 or S-100A Courses. Each instructor must keep their own list of students taught. No one else has access to these lists unless there may be a WorkSafeBC investigation of some type. EACH STUDENT IS ADVISED TO ENSURE THEY KEEP A RECORD OF THE DATE THE COURSE WAS TAKEN AND THE INSTRUCTOR'S NAME AND CONTACT.

KEEP RECORDS OF ALL YOUR TRAINING DETAILS
