Description:

Many fire departments regularly rely on auto aid or mutual aid in order to effectively respond to fires and other emergencies. For more than 20 years the fire departments of Chicago’s northern suburbs have conducted semi-annual multi-company drills to prepare themselves for a safe and effective response. Ranging from skill development to full-scale live fire exercises these sessions challenge different departments to work with one another. For more than 20 years about 700 firefighters participate in each spring and fall session. In this presentation attendees will hear described the history and development of the program, details of several past exercises, and lessons learned as well as the experiences of other regions who have conducted similar exercises.
