As administrators of public safety, fire personnel must handle:
  • Collapses
  • Fires
  • Floods
  • Hurricanes
  • Medical emergencies
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Tornadoes
These events remain, as always, unscheduled and unpredictable. These incidents are time sensitive, life threatening, and labor intensive. You never know when they will occur, but when they do, you need lots of trained people immediately.
