“The training classes and workshops are developed to be approachable, yet professional with the most current information available.”
Changes in the fire service are constant. New techniques, new equipment, new standards are the norm today. Keeping a department up to speed on all of this can be challenging for even the most ardent, and that is why Responder 1 Firefighter Training was developed.
Chief Frank Montes de Oca (aka Chief Taco) has been training firefighters for many years, including at annual conferences, in seminars and at the local department level. As a retired chief, he completely grasps the challenges you face with keeping firefighters safe and fully trained.
The training classes and workshops are developed to be approachable, yet professional with the most current information available. Topics are wide-ranging from safety procedures to orientation procedures, and how to handle a promotion.
Along with the training information provided here and in his workshops, Frank has included a number of resources for firefighters here. This ranges from copies of his presentations to valuable videos and papers he has come across.
Please take a moment to review the website, check out Chief Taco’s blog, and share it with others who will find it useful. We welcome and encourage your feedback as we continue to create an informative and valuable resource for our first responder heroes.
