    lots of guys will tell you what htey would like to do. this is important but not to be the determining factor of what to do. you will need to challenge them and give them practical job scenarios and also the class time to bring them up to the next level, then to the next level. help them (or make them) better firemen after each shift is over.


    i love stretching hose.... not just parking lot drills. get permission from parking garages or vacant building' owners and use them as your drill centers. if you have a smoke machine, this will add to the drill more challenges. think about a manaquin too. anything and everything that you may respond to -1st due or on a box alarm.
    call the junk yards around you if you do extrications.
    also have the crew suggest and share with there own knowlege and expirience. we are starting this week a quick drill program where each member will be charged with leading a small drill or discussion about fires or event.

    for those rainy days, youtube, UL studies, NIST reports, LODD and near miss reviews.

    some of your supervisors would likely have some good ideas of training topics. expand from the fd's training schedule too. such as, if you doing vehicle accidents - train on machinery entrapments during the next few shifts.




    also try to find a mentor or advisor in your orginization or one nearby.

    To be honest, sit back and get to know what they would like to do for drills, and what they also need proficency in... Even if you gotta sit back and think what was fun and kept you interested from when you were a new guy on the rig.... There are so many different ways and opinions of fun drills that keep the interest of the crew..

    Due to the large number of wells were drilled, using information from an adjacent well is used mainly to make the necessary choices. Two different types of drill bits exist: fixed cutter and roller cone. A fixed cutter bit is one in which there are no moving parts, but drilling caused by percussion or rotation of the drill pipe. Fixed cutter bits can be either polycrystalline diamond compact or grit hotpressed inserts.

    One trick that we have used is glad press and seal wrap. you place it on masks. it obscures the view to light and shapes only. Makes interior drills mush more real.

    We have a lot of fun "burning buildings down". We'll be driving somewhere and just say "OK that building there is on fire, you see flames . . . . . what should we do". Its fun because I use it to get my younger guys thinking about new/different scenarios. Once we talk it out in the parking lot, we go inside and check the place out. Great way to learn your buildings, and work on strategy/tactics at the same time.

    Hello out there,

    Just joined up here and I taking the time to look through the whole site.
    I am just moving to a new single pump station as the new officer. I have a very young crew, both in age and experience so I will aiming to do a lot of drills to make us as sharp as we can be.

    What I looking for are ideas for interesting senarios and ideas to make the drills exciting so all the participants are both learning fundamental skills, learning to improvise and think out side the box and prehaps most importantly looking forward to the next ¨fun¨ drill.

    I guess it fair to say no one loves repetive hose running and basic ladder drills so what do you do to keep the interest?

    Thanks for reading and (hopefully) answering
