Description: There is much more to being a Fire Police officer than simply setting up cones and directing traffic. Professionalism and confidence are a product of proper training and the proper application of that training. This course combines classroom lecture, table-top scenarios, and group discussion to provide the Fire Police Officer with increased knowledge and understanding of the following topics:

    • Situational Awareness
    • Health and safety issues related to job functions, duties and qualifications
    • Legal concepts that impact the Fire Police Officer
    • Effective communications tools
    • Response procedures for different types of incidents
    • Effective pre-planning
    • Leadership roles, qualifications, command presence and actions

Advanced Fire Police reviews topics from the Basic Fire Police Officer (BFPO) course and also introduces the student to issues of leadership, training responsibilities, report writing, court testimony and public relations. This course is designed for the Fire Police officer who wishes to fully explore the roll of the fire police in the fire service.
