Firefighting is the ultimate spectator sport, now more than ever. Cell phones mean that everything and anything we do can be caught on video. Nobody wants to end up in the YouTube hall of shame, however it happens. Some videos make us laugh, some make us gasp, some make us shake our heads. However these videos that we laugh about can be viewed badly in terms of public perception. This course will explore the challenges of being under constant watch by the public. By exploring the world of firefighting caught on video, students can learn how important it is to maintain competent and professional demeanor in and around the fire ground. Students will also be encouraged to have discussions about what we can learn from both good examples and bad examples of our profession on film. Videos can be an extremely valuable learning tool. Mistakes caught on camera can help us avoid the same situations in the future. They also give us the opportunity to have constructive after-action discussions to better prepare for future emergencies.
