Training

There were 2 parts to the training, 1 for the new members to continue with the skill cards and Bob ran a session for the others.

Bob’s training focused on the value of taking notes on the fire ground. Using a light hearted indoor exercise. This then developed into a general sharing of observations about command and control, drawing particularly on observations from the lengthy 2019/2020 fire season.
