One of the things i love to do is share different ideas and thoughts that i pick up from classes and seminars. I really wish more people would post and share notes so more people can learn.
The Class i took featured John Barylick and Joe Pronesti. John Reviewed The Station Nightclub Fire that Occurred in 2003. Joe Presented his Lost in the Fog Program for Small Departments.
Both Classes were Outstanding, and well worth the time. I have included my Notes Below. I tried to make them as easy to understand as possible, so please reach out if something doesn’t make sense.
Thanks, Ethan Bansek

How Do You Make it Personal? After All we owe it to THEM, The CIVILIANS!
Someone Recently asked me if there is anything I do to Study Fatal Fires in my State.
Below is the Powerpoint Format I use. I Try to make it as Personal as I can based on the Information Available online. NONE of these Particular Fires I was at, however Based on the Information I put myself there and Play What If’s. I Put in my own Different Factors (Staffing, Time of Day, Location of Fire, ETC…)
To Take it a Step Further I Look up the Actual Radio Traffic Using Broadcastify, Look up Pictures and Videos and Even Make Simulations.
So I ask you: What Do YOU Do to Make it Personal?
When Studying these Fires Look Particularly at: Fire and Smoke Conditions, Where the Victim was Found and In What Conditions they were in, Actions the Fire Department Did, and How it Affected the Rescue Effort.
We are NOT Bashing or Monday Morning Quarter-backing the Departments involved, Instead We are Trying to Learn from their Experiences!
Check out the First Episode of “The Senior Man” Podcast.
This is well worth the Time to Listen to!
