fire-chiefsBREWSTER – On Saturday November 5, 2016 the Barnstable County Fire Chiefs Association hosted a one-day fire command seminar titled “Command, Control, and Accountability” at the Captains Golf Course in Brewster.

The instructor for this dynamic training program was North Hudson (NJ) Regional Fire Department Deputy Chief Anthony Avillo (ret) who is a nationally recognized speaker and author known for his dynamic presentations involving fireground command, strategy and tactics, and company officer leadership.

During the program which attracted approximately 100 firefighters from across Cape Cod and the region Deputy Chief Avillo used his many years of fireground experience and familiarity with current fire suppression strategy and tactics to deliver a variety of incident command alternatives, fireground command and control systems, and company officer leadership tips that fire officers and firefighters could use to improve their level of safety at emergency incidents.

Using real life video and audio as the foundation of his presentation Deputy Chief Avillo discussed subjects such as decision making, size-up, incident command, safe driving, accountability, radio reports, apparatus placement, and the deployment of effective strategy and tactics at structure fires.

This is the fifth firefighter training event sponsored by the Barnstable County Fire Chiefs who have made it their mission to bring dynamic, innovative, and high-quality management, leadership, and fire suppression training to Barnstable County firefighters so that they are better prepared to respond to your requests for emergency services.
