The refresher will cover the following core topics:
  1. AVOIDING ENTRAPMENTS
    Study the risk management process as identified in the Incident Response Pocket Guide, e.g. LCES, Standard Fire Orders, 18 Watch Outs, Wildland Fire Decision Support System (WFDSS) direction, Fire Management Plan policies, etc.
  2. CURRENT ISSUES
    Review and discuss identified "hot topics" and "national emphasis topics". Review forecasts and assessments for the upcoming fire season and discuss implications for firefighter safety.
  3. FIRE SHELTER
    Review and discuss last resort survival. Conduct "hands-on" fire shelter inspections. Practice shelter deployments.
  4. OTHER HAZARDS and SAFETY ISSUES
    Choose additional hazard and safety subjects, which may include SAFENET, current safety alerts, site/unit specific safety issues and hazards.
