This course is the second part of our fire officer series. This class focuses on the same key areas for the officers identified in our Fire Officer I course but takes them up a notch. Rather than the company-level officer, this section is focused on the station or multiple company officer. This class seeks out that "higher level of understanding" in the following areas: 

  • Fire Officer II as a Manager
  • Applications of Leadership
  • Managing Company Risk Reduction Programs
  • Administrative Communications
  • Fire Cause Determination
  • Managing Major Incidents
