Presented by Captain Mike Gagliano (Ret.), Seattle Fire Department

Utilizing a simple framework that allows you build on your experiences, and those of others, you can develop an intuitive approach that grows with you throughout your career. The goal is to create a framework of 3 varying profiles: Rescue, Building and Fire. These profiles allow you to keep focused on your decisions and give you the ability to draw on what you’ve learned and react to changes in the dynamic fire environment. This is intended to be both a useful strategic and tactical tool on the fireground, as well as a dynamic instructional tool that will greatly enhance fireground aptitude.

This House Rocks. There is nothing quite like a firehouse. It can be the most incredible experience of your life or a miserable exile to purgatory. It can be a place of learning where skills are honed and techniques refined or a stagnant cesspool where competence erodes into ineffective complacency. Learn five key areas that can turn any firehouse into the type of place that enables firefighters to thrive and fulfill their calling. This class will look at how to build and enjoy the type of firehouse everyone wants.

Mike Gagliano has over 33 years of fire/crash/rescue experience with the Seattle Fire Department and the United States Air Force.
