This course is the second part in our fire officer series. This class focuses on the same key areas for the officers identified in our Fire Officer I course, but takes them up a notch. Rather than being focused on the company level officer, it is focused on the station or multiple company officer.

This class seeks out that "higher level of understanding" in the following areas:

 
  • Transition To New Roles And Responsibilities
  • Operational Planning Principles
  • Strategy & Tactics
  • Communication
  • Health And Safety
  • Human Resources
  • Legal Issues
  • Professional Fire Service
  • Development Of Goals
  • Code Enforcement
  • Training

Fire Officer III


 *Fire Officer II or Equivalent Required*

This 5-day course is the final step of our fire officer series. This course is intended for shift commanders and above. The intended purpose is to continue to build upon the lessons learned in the Fire Officer I and Fire Officer II courses. As personnel continue to ascend in the ranks, they assume more responsibility regarding leadership, management and administration. Fire ground responsibilities also change. There are daily issues, and less frequent events, that require additional preparation in order to be successful. Completion of the RAFT Fire Officer I and Fire Officer II officer 1 and 2 is recommended.

This program includes:

  • Leadership
  • Human Resources
  • Politics
  • PR & Customer Service
  • Legal Issues
  • Media Relations
  • Personal Development
  • Fire Prevention
  • Incident Management
  • Scene Investigation
  • Safety Issues
  • Strategy & Tactics
