Firefighter Basic (FFB): This teaches the basics of the incident management system and how to stay safe on the fire ground as well as CPR & 1st aid.
Firefighter Intermediate (FFI): This course is designed to take the FFB from the "cold" zone into the "warm" zone, doing external attack, using ground ladders, fire extinguishers, hoses and nozzles, and gives them a basic understanding of fire behavior.
Firefighter Advanced (FFA): This course will take what a FFI already knows and expand on all of it. We will also introduce interior operations like fire attack, searches, and victim removal.
