The Fire Officer Course curriculum is designed to give the fire company officer a comprehensive view of the fire organization and define his responsibility to the department, the public, and municipal management.  It includes, but is not limited to, Fire Department Management, Fire Ground Command, and Suppression Principles and Techniques.

The goal of this course is to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to perform the duties of the Incident Safety Officer (ISO) during incident operations & training evolutions.  The course is incident-specific, scenario-oriented designed to teach students what an ISO needs to know at an incident.  Instructor-led discussion, multimedia activities and small group discussions to convey instructional points will be used.  Target Audience:  Fire & EMS responders who may be designated by the Incident Commander as an ISO while working within an Incident Command System.  These assignments may occur during firefighting, EMS, special operations type incidents, and training evolutions.


This course addresses the need for fire service Incident Commanders (IC’s) to understand fully building construction, methods of construction, materials used in building construction, and fire-resistance requirements in order to conduct fire scene operations safety and make sound strategic decision.  The intent of this course is to prepare IC’s, Company Officers, Safety Officers, and others to read a building correctly and us this knowledge in their decision-making process.


The goal of this course is designed to develop the management skills needed by Company Officers to accomplish assigned tactics at structure fires.  It is important to understand that the course material was developed for newly appointed officers or firefighters who may have acting CO responsibilities, but it would provide an excellent review for experience officers.  All activities and scenarios used in this course are based on structure fires.  There will be a walk-through activity followed by one or more small group, scenario-driven activities for each of the areas covered
