Laramie County Fire District #2 is sponsoring a seminar for firefighters across the region called ‘Honoring Tradition, Leading Change.' The event began today and will continue on both Saturday and Sunday. Sessions will be held at Little America, LCCC, and the fire training facility.
The seminar being held is the first step in getting firefighters and command staff to adapt and learn new techniques and tactics to equal the changes in materials and construction that have occurred over the past few decades.
Speakers from various corporations and fire departments around the country will be involved this weekend. The speakers will cover topics ranging from how to safely fight wildland and urban interface fires. Other topics will be on extrication techniques, preventing flashover and modern fire ground tactics.
