I'm scheduled to go in January, I'm just wondering if they're doing that useless "Incident Command" training again for the third year in a row.
I'd be stuck on last-halfs for the foreseeable future, and I told my wife she wouldn't want to be married to the person I'd become if I had to work that shift.popo said:What, $125K base with Master's Degree. Take it!! :NO:
Great....more useless crap that we'll never use.frank said:http://www.dhs.gov/dhspublic/display?theme=51&content=3423
I think there's a newer version of that manual though (that is, if anyone cares)...
I have yet to see any federal grant money benefit me in any way. It always goes towards cookouts for criminals, or other equally useless, feel-good bullshit.danforth said:I went to the day in-service in August. A lot of NIMS. It did drag badly after a while but the instructors were honest with us explaining they need to document a certain amount of training hours in order to qualify for federal grant money.

Speaking as one of the CPR/First Responder instructors it is a unique change of pace to have our segment of inservice be the highlight of the week.:uc:frapmpd24 said:I'll be at in-service next week at the Boylston Academy. To my horror there are three days of incident command scheduled. Pretty bad when CPR/First Aid is the highlight of the week. If I am not still sleeping for weeks afterwards I will post on how it is (or isn't). Three days of "how to talk/act like a fire fighter" basically. Lets all remember, FEMA does not want us talking in codes anymore, there are not too many acronyms in this "ICS" training.
Good instruction, I like the addition of Jeopardy in the beginning, have to keep it interesting. Hey, I even answered the Paramedic question right... only for 100 points, which like the Drew Carey show "Who's Line is it Anyway"... don't really matter. Plus your real life example, speaks for itself and glad to see everything turned out alright.texdep said:Well how was the inservice at Boylston.??????
