In Organized Chaos: Success in Training Your Department to Act as One; you will learn how AFD trained a standard set of operational guidelines that has earned them recognition from their peers and fire service associations alike.

You will hear examples of fireground tactics and radio communications both before and after AFD implemented their standards and training. Participants will also engage in discussions of why communication and command break down on the fireground.
