Past FETC Testimonials
The 25 full-time
members of the Lebanon Fire Department were apprehensive about attending a "mandatory" ARFF certification
course which would further expand their duties which already include fire suppression, rescue, and transporting EMS. The FETC staff instructors were energetic and related the new material to the "stuff"
the guys already knew which made the experience far more meaningful. We walked away feeling the training program
was comprehensive and one that was designed to fit the needs of our airport and firefighters, with the bonus
of a convenient schedule. - Captain Andy White; President L-3197
- I attended "Managing
the Mayday" at the Meadowood Area County Fire School in Fitzwilliam, NH. I would like to recommend this
class to all of the smaller communities that rely heavily on a mutual aid response to fulfill the operational safety net of
RIT. The instructor was worth every penny, using recent case studies, a state-of-art simulation program and real world statistics.
He was very experienced in the limitations that many of us encounter daily and deliver answers to what many of
us have. His "outside the box" viewpoint towards Mutual Aid and CRM is definately NOT just a big-city
class on how RIT should be done. Hope to see you again. Tim - RVFD
recently attended the "MAYDAY" Management seminar hosted in Erma, New Jersey. I have been involved with
R.I.T. / R.I.C. / F.A.S.T for over 10 years now as a student, instructor and author of some MAYDAY S.O.G.'s. I took from Mr.
Greenwood's presentation a new respect of MAYDAY management. The audio/visual presentations sent the message home.
With this new information, I feel confident to take our drills and operations to the next step. Time well spent, thanks
again. Dale Gentek; E.V.F.C. Captain, Wildwood, NJ. Fire Department and NJTF-1 Resq-5.
Mr. Greenwood, did a great job delivering the "MAYDAY" Management seminar. I have
been actively training with a few good friends for over 10 plus years, we have always focused on the actual "hands-on"
training. This class will help us focus on front loading our response along with the command aspect. Very good selection
of videos and audio to bring everything together. I highly recommend this class to everyone. Captain Arthur Hayden - Erma,
NJ. Volunteer Fire Department
