Part 1: Art of the Educated Search: Strategies & Tactics for success when arriving w/ “Reports of People Trapped”. Understanding how our entry determines our path, and the methods to clear rooms of varying living space. Sizing up occupancy types & understanding residential construction to maximize our search timeline. Techniques for “clearing” compartments quickly & efficiently during the primary search, and accomplishing the “30 Seconds Out” Survivable Space Search.


Part 2: RIT; Reinvented: The most progressive approach to preplanning and producing a positive outcome following the “MAYDAY, MAYDAY, MAYDAY”. Understanding who will be a victim, why, and how it’s likely to occur. Then, how we mitigate the emergency w/ proper tools, access techniques, and removal tactics.


Please note that for all H.O.T. classes you will need to bring your complete PPE (Coat, Pants and Boots, Helmet, Gloves and Hood). The OC FOOLS are sponsored by SCOTT SCBA however, if you have a particular brand of SCBA you can bring it with you and we suggest a spare cylinder.
