New England FOOLS member and Portsmouth Firefighter Tim Griswold will be speaking on the topic of fire-based EMS.

He’ll discuss how to maximize the capabilities of the ambulance crew during fire suppression operations by using their personnel, skills, and knowledge. Discussion will include how fire department administration can create policies to efficiently integrate the ambulance crew into fireground operations, how to properly equip the ambulance for the tasks the crew could be expected to perform, and training the firefighters assigned to ambulances to properly prepare and maintain the proper mindset to be a valuable asset on the fireground. Although most fire departments have taken an all-hazards approach to emergency response, the primary mission of the fire department remains fire suppression.

Tim will be presenting this very program at FDIC 2020 in Indianapolis in April.

Program will begin at 1400 Sunday February 9th at the West Kennebunk Maine Fire Station, 80 Thompson Rd, Kennebunk. Easily accessible from Route 95.

Cost is $20 per person, light refreshment will be served.
