“The Art of Go/No-Go”

The toughest and most critical decisions you make in your career typically revolve around committing to an interior attack or choosing another route. Seasoned officers know the difference between “We can get it” and “It’s lost”. Students will learn how to use a simple framework to build on their experience and those of others and develop an intuitive approach that will grow with them throughout their career. This is not a magic class; no one becomes a great decision maker by attending a few classes and watching a few videos. A framework is created for four varying profiles: Rescue, Fire, Building and Tactical. These profiles will allow you to keep focused on your decisions, draw on what you’ve learned, and react to changes in the dynamic fire environment. Students will leave with tools that will help them to continue to grow in their decision – making ability and that they can use to drill their troops.


Our special guest speaker will be Captain Mike Gagliano, Seattle Fire Department

Speaker information: Mike is a 30 yr veteran of the Seattle (WA) Fire Department and the US Air Force. He is captain of Ladder 5.
