Public safety education network


Walk about ... Do you?

Preparation is a key to efficient, effective, managed risk while fighting fire.  How many people are responding to a fire, how experienced, who are they, what they can do versus what they are capable of doing.  Walk abouts can help.  Listen to the podcast and get outdoors while the weather is good.


Training in the fire service has taken on a whole new look and meaning. We know there are no shortages of fire service platforms, publications, conferences, and on-line training to pick from. Is personal and professional development in your plans? Day-to-day living, family expectations, time, opportunity? PSEN was created to help solve this dilemma. Our work is unique, we coach and guide our students/colleagues rather than lecture. My good fortune along with vision, dedication and education has brought me to a place where PSEN can provide a unique niche in fire service education. Our ability to ADAPT. The dynamics of how the fire service is changing is a direct reflection of adaptation. For as long as I can recall fireground strategies and ultimately fireground tactics were built on a foundation of common denominators. Certain types of houses, certain types of commercial buildings, certain types of fires, and certain firefighter actions. Our need to "adapt" remained generally confined to within these parameters. It is becoming more apparent that we must demonstrate an ability to "adapt" to new technology, tools, construction designs, techniques, codes, and education all of which seems to be changing at a rate ten times faster than just a generation ago. The early success of PSEN is a direct result of the adaptation many public safety leaders recognize must be made. We have heard many say that we need to be more creative, flexible, and cunning in order to take control our destiny rather than destiny seeming to control us. PSEN is taking control of its destiny and we will continue to lead the way.

Don't Break the Windows! This is a video that chronicles Boston Fire Department Mayday Training. It was produced two years ago but I just came across it and want to share it with PSEN friends. It is informative and worth your time, worthy of a kitchen table discussion about Mayday operations.
