Will you be in the money on the next list?


SPRING 2018 SEMINIAR SERIES

Staring in January 2018, Fire Tech will begin a Series of Seminars which will focus primarily on firefighting and emergency tactics which are highly likely test areas found on every Lieutenant’s, Captain's and Battalion Chief's exam.


SPRING 2018 BATTALION CHIEF COURSE

In addition to the "Firefighting Seminars" Fire Tech will also begin a Battalion Chiefs Course. This will be a Battalion Chief test specific and will contain multiple choice questions that address problem areas relevant to the duties and perspective of a battalion chief (Sizeup, Command and Control, construction concerns, apparatus, line placement, extension, communications, safety, manpower, overtime, accident investigation.) The topics that will be covered in each class will be selected areas from Firefighting Procedures, Chief Dunn’s book on collapse, Brannigan’s book on construction, BISP and administrative topics that B.C.’s deal with frequently and are considered “hot topics”, as well as other A.U.C.’s and miscellaneous bulletins that relate to the duties and responsibilities of a Battalion Chief.


With the next round of exams expected to begin by the end of 2018.

  • Battalion Chief exam projected for late 2018

  • Captains exam projected for Fall 2019

  • Lieutenants exam projected for Fall 2019


Will you be ready for the next exam! The value of promotion is not only a financially secure future for you and your family, it is also a way for you to grow and serve in your chosen profession. The opportunity knocks only once every several years.


Stay tune for specific class locations, dates, times, class reading schedule and on-line questions which will be posted in the next several weeks.
