Phil is the co-author of “Air Management for the Fire Service” (Pennwell 2008) as well as other book and video products. Phil is also the recipient of the FDIC Tom Brennan Training Achievement Award. This is a great opportunity to attend two of his classes in the same location. (Phil Jose is also teaching “The Art of Reading Smoke” – Thursday June 16, 2022)

Tactical Decision-Making: This is a highly-interactive and informative course where students learn to achieve rapid, accurate solutions to fireground problems. Using fire-ground video, Recognition-Primed strategies and a question based approach, Phil’s interactive style engages students in the decision-making process, where they will learn to identify the strengths and weaknesses of their tactical plans.
