CFPC: 2016 Seminar Series

Seminar Series


For 2016 the very popular Connecticut Fire Academy Seminar Series continues to bring nationally known fire service presenters to Connecticut speaking on current and engaging fire service topics.

The next scheduled Seminar Series titled When Buildings Change the Rules of the Game is scheduled for Friday, February 5, 2016. Registration begins at 0800; the class is scheduled from 0830 to 1630 at the Connecticut Fire Academy. The course number is 16298 and the course fee is $55.00 with lunch included.

The seminar will be presented by Deputy Chief Anthony Avillo, North Hudson, NJ Regional Fire & Rescue (ret.)

In this seminar the speaker will focus on those issues that firefighters must be aware of to operate more safely in the buildings they are entering. The seminar will highlight how different types of construction and occupancies change the rules of the game and how personnel on scene must adjust the strategies and tactics to meet that challenge. This seminar will offer the audience solutions to address the concerns discussed.

Chief Avillo is the author of Fireground Strategies, 3rd edition (Fire Engineering, 2015) along with other publications. He was recipient of the 2012 Fire Engineering/ISFSI George D. Post Fire Instructor of the Year Award.

This seminar is appropriate for students of all ranks in the Fire Service.
