The Nevada State Fire Marshal Division will be conducting live fire training for attendees who are emergency responders.

Live fire training is a critical part of the instruction and certification process for firefighters. It exposes them to a live fire atmosphere where they can gain valuable knowledge and experience in a safe environment.

–All live fire training events will strictly adhere to the NFPA 1403 Standard on Live Fire Training Evolutions.
–Participants are required to provide their own structural firefighting ensembles (garments, helmets, hoods, gloves, and footwear) that comply with NFPA 1971 and NFPA 1500.
–Participants are also required to provide their own respiratory protection (SCBA – Self Contained Breathing Apparatus) that complies with NFPA 1852 and 29 CFR 1910.134.

Each participant must complete a Nevada State Fire Marshal Division Live Burn Accountability form as part of the registration for FireShowsWest. This form must be signed by the Chief of their agency or the Chief’s designee. A contact phone number for your agency is required.

The training will utilize two types of mobile training props that include an LP-Gas Fire Simulation Prop, and a Car Fire Trainer Prop.
–The Mobile LP-Gas Simulation Prop is constructed utilizing a 320-gallon container and fueled by liquid propane. It has a simulated relief valve that can produce flame heights of approximately 35 ft. There are two valves on the container that the participants must close.
–The Kidde Car Fire Trainer Prop realistically replicates a car fire in a safe environment. It has multiple burn zones and is able to produce scenarios such as: engine fire, forward passenger area fire, rear passenger area fire, fuel spill fire. It has a hinged hood, trunk, and passenger doors to allow access into the different compartments and the hood is pry-able which allows participants to conduct forcible entry drills.

Forcible entry with the irons is one of the cornerstone skills of our profession. The ability to put these skills into practice, modify techniques for desired outcomes in specific circumstances, and impart this knowledge for others without wasting cognitive capital is crucial. Elevating your forcible entry game to journeyman status makes us more effective on the fireground, thus more effective for the public’s safety and the safety of ourselves.

The H&H cadre will take your comprehension and application of one of our profession’s fundamental skill sets to the next level through in-depth explanation, demonstration, and assist application of the HOW and WHY behind the irons.

By the end of this course, attendees will possess an in-depth and intimate knowledge of the how and why behind the irons. Attendees will through lecture, demonstration, and hands-on participation, be able to confidently and competently walk away with a journeyman level comprehension.
