    Principles of Modern Fire Attack: SLICE-RS 8-hour Course

    This class will provide a firsthand look at the UL/NIST Modern Fire Behavior/Dynamics studies and serve to educate students how they can be delivered and instituted in their fire departments. It is our hope that by compiling the best lessons learned from the fire dynamics research, fire departments will be able to adjust their policies, tactics and training to create a safer environment for the fire service as well as the people we serve in our communities.

    This information has been known to be controversial to some, so be prepared for great discussions. You don’t have to look far for good discussion regarding fire command, control, accountability and especially fire behavior. The shared science, research and best practices are another tool for your toolbox! Go home to your department with a renewed outlook and with a healthy knowledge of the Principles of Modern Fire Attack: SLICE-RS.

    I get your sarcasm...nice firehouse kitchen table touch!! Some of the concepts, while not necessarily brand new, are modifications of what we may have been doing already. Others will take a substantial cultural change in some places to just add them to the tactical toolbox. When you look at social media and see people that advocate adding these tactics called cowards, yard breathers and pussies it is clear that ignorance has a strong position in the fire service.

    The truth is I have paid attention to these studies from the start and tried to read as much as I could about them and view as many videos as I could about the studies and how to implement them tactically. Last year I wrote a training and SOG for my then both POC FDs and we trained on the idea. At one FD we had a house to burn down and we tried the Transitional attack and found it worked. Actual hands on sells concepts better than a million lectures will.

    The instructor was Forest Reeder, Division Chief of Training and Safety for the Des Plains Illinois Fire Department.

    It was a good class, with good student/Instructor interaction. To be honest a good part of it validated what I had been teaching already and the rest gave me additional information I can use to support Flow Path and Transitional Attack. An added bonus was the clear explanation of the interface of SLICE-RS and RECEO-VS and that rescue is not marginalized but clearly stated as a tactic that occurs at any point as required.

    I believe that the 4 of us from our tech college will push to get the message out.

The subject material is supposed to cover the FDNY/UL/NIST Governor's Island studies, flow path and transitional attack. I have been teaching the flow path and transitional attack for a couple of years now and figured I should have the official stamp of approval of having had the course myself.
