Fire Service Certification Series. General/Orientation. Unit FSCS-FF-1-80.
Pribyl, Paul F.
This training unit on general information/orientation is part of a 17-unit course package written to aid instructors in the development, teaching, and evaluation of fire fighters in the Wisconsin Fire Service Certification Series. The purpose stated for the 8-hour unit is to familiarize fire fighters with the members of their class, the course, the facilities to be used, what will be expected of them, and what they can expect from the training agency. Other areas covered are history, traditions and organization of the fire service, and apparatus familiarization. An instructor's guide sheet provides this information: introduction to the topic, instructor preparation, length of unit, methods of instruction, testing, equipment and facilities required, recommended visual aids, and references. Following a list of unit objectives, a lesson plan outlines the main teaching points and states the preferred teaching method, cites the reference and page number(s) where the information is to be found, and indicates the necessary handouts. Other contents in the unit include a unit quiz, answer key to the quiz, and handouts (graphs, student worksheets, informational material, and forms). (Because of the wide scope of materials covered, this unit contains three lesson plans: orientation, history, traditions, and organization of the fire service; apparatus familiarization; and fire investigation.)
