Sports Psychology for the Fireground-Lecture

Lecture: Enhancing human performance is being used in professional sports and the United States Olympic teams to get an edge on the competition.  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 reach optimal human performance. Using our Reality Based Training model with mental skills coaching techniques, attendees will walk away with a roadmap on how to train and the ability to perform under pressure. (2 or 4 Hours)

Residential Primary Search

Baseball and other sports use data to drive their defense and offense. Data in the fire service is being collected but are we using that data to optimize our time? Attendees will understand the data points of “grabs” during a primary search and having the data drive how and where they search. Using the Reality Based Training Format, students will gradually progress through levels of stress while conducting a primary search. Using an oriented search technique, firefighters will learn about the importance of staying in condition yellow (cognitive processing) and Condition Red (Optimal Performance Zone) between the two-person team. During the training, instructors will provide techniques on how firefighters can control their tempo. If we control the tempo of the “game” we control the game. Forcible Entry will be touched on to prepare for the High-Level Scenarios
