Dexter Maine Fire Department
Access to fire officer programs in Maine is very tough. The tactics and strategy programs have been a huge help for our firefighters and their ability to make good safe decisions at an incident. We have attended every Pine Point program in our area.
Bradford Maine Fire Department
We have been able to apply some of the things we have learned at actual incidents. We recently used door control to keep a fire in check until firefighters arrived and were ready to advance inside.
Payson Tucker Hose Company # 1
Maine and New England have the oldest housing stock in the nation. Statistics and data indicate that there are more firefighter deaths and injuries per 100,000 fires in the Northeast than any other region in the United States. Homes that were built in the early 1900's as single-family dwellings have been converted over to large multi-family dwellings. New modern homes with lightweight construction and petroleum based materials are being built. Together the mix of old and new pose significant safety risks for firefighters. "We are really at a very critical time in the fire service" said Roger Audette. Fire departments all over Maine and the United States are struggeling with recruitment and retention issues. Responding with fewer firefighters, less experience and little or no training related to managing fire scenes. New research and information from UL and ATF indicate the need for standardized procedures to keep firefighters safe. New protocols and curriculum changes are required to maintain the highest level of firefighter safety.
