Personal Protective Equipment principles for Hazardous Materials PPE are no different than the principles of Structural Firefighting PPE.  The immediate need of any responder is understanding the level of protection needed to safely manage hazards and mitigate an incident.  At a hazardous materials incident, over protection can be just as, if not more, dangerous than under protection.  Knowing the different respiratory protection and protective ensembles gives the responder the knowledge to predict ensemble limitations as well as user limitations.  Once the determination of PPE has been made the responder can effectively mitigate the emergency using spill and leak control measures learned at the Operations level.  Once the incident has been mitigated a decontamination process reduces the chances of secondary contamination.  The Operations level responder must also be able to differentiate, set up, and work in different types of decontamination corridors.  This course offers 4 CE hours covering personal protective equipment, product control, gross and emergency decontamination.  This course offers an interactive practice session and quiz based off IFSTA Essentials of Firefighting, 7th Edition Manual. NFPA 1001 4.1, 5.3.1, 5.4.1, 5.5.1, 5.6.1, 6.2.1, 6.6.1 Show less

The overarching mission of the Bell County HOT series of area fire schools is to bring practical, meaningful and purposeful hands-on fire training to that is easily accessible to central Texas Firefighters in terms of both location and cost. Bell County HOT was established in 2019, drawing Firefighters from as far as Flower Mound and Rowlett. It was quickly apparent that we would need to expand our course offerings and redesign the delivery to ensure Firefighters in need of basic, formative training could come into a learning environment geared towards the foundations and fundamentals of learning the trade from the ground up. Also evident was the need to hit the ground running with our more seasoned participants with just twenty, short hours devoted to thought provoking lectures and intensive, reality-based HOT sessions and scenarios.What we soon found is that it would be impossible to offer the quantity…more importantly the quality…of the content we were striving for in a single weekend. Bell County HOT brings two weekends packed full of top-notch lecture and HOT sessions back to Temple Fire & Rescue’s Training Center, each with a very specific bent towards both unique audiences. Sought after instructors from around the state will be on hand to spread the gospel. Show less

Fire Extension CoursesCEF016Building Materials, Structural Collapse, and Effects of Fire Suppression
Modern fires are burning hotter and faster than ever before, leading to extreme fire conditions that result in structural collapse. This is attributed to the modern day “lightweight construction.” Over time building materials transitioned from masonry, to heavy timber and true dimensional lumber, to our modern day laminated “lightweight” materials. Every year firefighters are dying in the line of duty due to structural collapses, sometimes even after the fire is out. We must remain aware that the fire is not the only factor that stresses our structures, our suppression efforts have an effect on the structure’s integrity as well.This course offers 4 CE hours covering building materials themselves and how those materials can affect fire ground operations. This course offers an interactive practice session and a module quiz based off IFSTA Essentials of Firefighting, 7th Edition Manual. This course satisfies: NFPA 1001 5.3.2 Show less

Fire Extension CoursesCEF026Personal Protective Equipment, Product Control, and Decontamination
Personal Protective Equipment principles for Hazardous Materials PPE are no different than the principles of Structural Firefighting PPE.  The immediate need of any responder is understanding the level of protection needed to safely manage hazards and mitigate an incident.  At a hazardous materials incident, over protection can be just as, if not more, dangerous than under protection.  Knowing the different respiratory protection and protective ensembles gives the responder the knowledge to predict ensemble limitations as well as user limitations.  Once the determination of PPE has been made the responder can effectively mitigate the emergency using spill and leak control measures learned at the Operations level.  Once the incident has been mitigated a decontamination process reduces the chances of secondary contamination.  The Operations level responder must also be able to differentiate, set up, and work in different types of decontamination corridors.  This course offers 4 CE hours covering personal protective equipment, product control, gross and emergency decontamination.  This course offers an interactive practice session and quiz based off IFSTA Essentials of Firefighting, 7th Edition Manual.

Firefighters must have the courage to face a multitude of risks in order to save lives and protect their communities. Their courage allows them to willingly risk their own lives so that others can be saved. A different type of courage is required to stay safe in potentially dangerous situations, avoiding needless risks, and tragic consequences. This provocative and moving presentation is designed to change the culture of accepting the loss of firefighters as a normal occurrence. Building on the untold story of Line-of-Duty Death (LODD) survivors, it reveals how family members must live with the consequences of a firefighter’s death, and provides a focus on the need for firefighters and officers to change fundamental attitudes and behaviors in order to prevent line of duty deaths. The central theme promotes the courage to do the right thing in order to protect yourself and other firefighters and ensure that, “Everyone Goes Home” at the end of the day. Show less

Fire Extension CoursesXTN075Emergency Services UTV/ATV Safety
Utility Terrain Vehicles (UTV) and All Terrain Vehicles (ATV) have gained wider acceptance and use in both the fire service and emergency medical service (EMS). These vehicles can help responders take quicker action with less physical exhaustion of department members. These vehicles not only help the EMS providers or firefighters that use them, but may also benefit the individuals serviced by the emergency service organization (ESO). Adding UTVs and ATVs to an ESO fleet may provide great benefits but might also present safety issues if those using the vehicle have not been properly trained in the operation and maintenance. This safety program was developed to provide training for ESOs that use these types of specialty vehicles. Show less

Fire Extension CoursesXTN087Large Animal Rescue Awareness & Operations: Veterinary & First Responders
This course partnership between TEEX and TAMU VET and assumes the adherence to NFPA 1670-14 Awareness/Operations level standards for Animal Technical Rescue. The course is designed to meet the needs of responding to the different victims wherever possible and to incorporate appropriate sections of NFPA 1006 as needed.Awareness level training prepares the participant to understand scene size-up, recognize the need for technical rescue, identify necessary resources and determine how to obtain them, demonstrate equipment identification, recognize the hazards associated with animal technical rescue, and know the methods for mitigating these hazards. Operations level training prepares the participant to demonstrate skills of rope rigging to include hauling and lowering systems, demonstrate knowledge of rope related and animal related technical rescue equipment, edge protection, single and multi-point anchor systems, and to be able to perform simple assists, low angle lifts from a stable location, and rescue glide/patient transport packaging.The course will discuss the necessity and operations of the Incident Command System. Understanding how ICS works as well as its role in animal technical rescue situations, particularly those with multiple agencies responding is essential.Animal behavior and care are covered with respect to horses, cattle, dogs, and cats, as these species will likely make up the majority of animal technical rescue missions. Body language and positioning of both animals and humans are considered. Safety concerns are also addressed, as well as basic first aid for animals. Show less

The course is designed to meet the needs of responding to the different victims wherever possible and to incorporate appropriate sections of NFPA 1006 as needed.This course covers situations involving confined space, below grade, low and high angle rescues. Techniques for each type are discussed and applied to a variety of scenarios that a responder is likely to encounter. A capstone experience at the end of the course requires that participants apply the knowledge gained throughout the course to a practice scenario involving a mannequin with limited assistance from the instructors.The course will discuss the necessity and operations of the Incident Command System. Understanding how ICS works as well as its role in animal technical rescue situations, particularly those with multiple agencies responding is essential. The ability to employ ICS to a scene not only improves the speed and efficiency of the rescue, but also its effectiveness, as the order provided minimizes risk of death or injury to the rescuers and the victim as a result of miscommunications.Rigging systems are also covered in depth, with special attention given to rope and knots, various types of equipment that are important to animal technical rescue, how to use anchors effectively, and the use of simple and compound mechanical advantage systems. Participants will be able to set up appropriate rigging systems for a given situation and have a general understanding of how the equipment functions.Animal behavior and care are covered with respect to horses, cattle, dogs, and cats, as these species will likely make up the majority of animal technical rescue missions.

Personal Protective Equipment principles for Hazardous Materials PPE are no different than the principles of Structural Firefighting PPE.  The immediate need of any responder is understanding the level of protection needed to safely manage hazards and mitigate an incident.  At a hazardous materials incident, over protection can be just as, if not more, dangerous than under protection.  Knowing the different respiratory protection and protective ensembles gives the responder the knowledge to predict ensemble limitations as well as user limitations.  Once the determination of PPE has been made the responder can effectively mitigate the emergency using spill and leak control measures learned at the Operations level.  Once the incident has been mitigated a decontamination process reduces the chances of secondary contamination.  The Operations level responder must also be able to differentiate, set up, and work in different types of decontamination corridors.  This course offers 4 CE hours covering personal protective equipment, product control, gross and emergency decontamination.  This course offers an interactive practice session and quiz based off IFSTA Essentials of Firefighting, 7th Edition Manual.
