Lecture: Sports Psychology is being used in professional sports and the United States Olympic teams. How does Sports Psychology relate to the fire service? Firefighters are tactical athletes which need tools to accomplish high speed problem solving under pressure. This open and honest lecture provides the attendees information on how their bodies and minds react when the fear response is activated, how to harness this response and accomplish “flow”. Using our Reality Based Training model with sports psychology, attendees will walk away with a roadmap on how to train and the ability to perform under pressure.
Hands On Training: When a Mayday is transmitted on the fireground the game becomes personal. You’ll now know the victim; you’ll know their family and your training and experiences are even more valuable. This class will discuss the mental aspects of dealing with these fireground emergencies and will give you the keys to succeed even when you and your team are being pushed to the limit. During this 1-and-a-half-day course members will engage in lecture as well as hands-on training, all utilizing our “Reality-Based” Training Philosophy with breakouts that include: Forcible Entry, Residential Primary Search, and firefighter removal from above and below grade. The second half of the day, all objectives and techniques will be practiced during our High-Level and Complex Scenarios under high stress. We do not have the option to lose when it’s one of our own to save.
