CFPC: 2014 Seminar Series

Seminar Series



For 2014 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 25 to Survive: Reducing Residential Injury and LODD is scheduled for Friday, October 24, 2014. Registration begins at 0800; the class is scheduled from 0830 to 1630 at the Connecticut Fire Academy. The course number is 15137 and the course fee is $55.00 with lunch included. The seminar will be presented by Battalion Chief Dan Shaw, Fairfax County Fire & Rescue Department and Lieutenant Douglas Mitchell, Jr. FDNY.


This presentation will emphasize that more firefighters are seriously injured and killed while operating at residential building fires than at any other building type we encounter. This presentation will address 25 critical firefighting issues common to the residential building. These 25 topics are obviously, by far, not an exhaustive and comprehensive list. They are however, repeatedly noted in recent “near miss reports” and National Institute Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommendations in many of our Line of Duty Deaths (LODD).
