Standard Evolution Summary

 

OVERVIEW:

 

            Standardized evolutions provide a mechanism to facilitate fundamental training, measure performance, and evaluate the operational impact of the regional training plan. The West Valley Regional Fire Training Consortium will design evolutions, in accordance to NFPA 1410 recommendations, to reflect the standard operating guidelines of the participating agencies.

 

 

OBJECTIVES:

 

  1. Provide a universal template to measure performance and facilitate training.

  2. Designate realistic and relevant evolutions, referencing NFPA 1410, that reflect regional SOGs.

  3. Design a modular system that develops fundamental skills at the company level and incorporates multi-unit operations.

IMPLEMENTATION:

 

  1. Evolutions will be designed to build in complexity of task and number of units involved:

    1. 100 Series: Single Company / Basic Task Evolutions

    2. 200 Series: Dual Company / Multi-Task Evolutions

    3. 300 Series: Multi-Company / Simulated Emergency Response Evolutions

       

  2. There will be 10 Standard Evolutions designated for both the Engine and Truck Companies:

    1. Standard Evolutions:

      1. (4) 100 Series Evolutions for each

      2. (4) 200 Series Evolutions for each

    2. Evolutions will be assigned, alternating months in corresponding “odd” or “even” years:

      1. 2017: Evolution 101, 103, 201, 203

      2. 2018: Evolution 102, 104, 202, 204

    3. The assigned evolution will performed by both the Engine and Truck Companies

      1. Example: Evolution #102 is assigned in the 1st month:

        • Engine Companies perform Engine Evolution 102: Handlines

        • Truck Companies perform Truck Evolution 102: Ground Ladders

           

  3. The 300 Series will consist of four (4) multi company evolutions:

    1. These evolutions will be assigned in corresponding “odd” or “even” years to complete the 12 month calendar:

      1. 2017: Evolution 301 and 303 are assigned in May and November

      2. 2018: Evolution 302 and 304 are assigned in May and November

         

  4. Baseline performance is established during the initial implementation (one year cycle). Subsequently the evolutions may be evaluated at any time as the WVTC or Agency requires.
