“Understanding the Situations Around You”

Presenter: Dr. William Jenaway- Fire Chief


Overview: We don’t need a dictionary to tell us, understanding the situation around us when entering a fire or rescue situation can mean the difference between life and death to our crew. It is up to the officers in charge of the incident, division, crew or apparatus to know the level of risk they are encountering and make the critical decision of when to advance or retreat to risk only what you are willing to lose versus what can be saved. Remember no building is worth the life of a firefighter – be aware of your situation! Similarly, we have to understand the situation around us at the station, and on the street to not only stay safe, but to protect the assets of our organization, to protect our customers, and to keep our organization from experiencing problems. Chief Jenaway brings his years of experience through examples of situations that have created problems for fire and EMS agencies and how to manage them. Firefighters, EMTs, Chief officers, administrators, and Commissioners will all find examples of how to protect themselves and their organizations.

Instructor’s Bio: William F. Jenaway, Ph.D, CFPS, CFO, CSP, CPP, FIFE is Executive Vice President of VFIS, the countries largest insurer of fire and EMS agencies.
