Today’s modern fire ground places stringent demands on our firefighters. Firefighters are required to formulate our strategies and tactics at 15 times the speed as we did in the past due to the high heat release rate fuels in structure fires. These fires develop faster and are predominantly ventilation limited fires with heavy, turbulent, black smoke that reduces our visibility. Tactical Thermal Imaging enhances a firefighter’s decision-making skill set by providing thermal data. This data allows firefighters to:
- Quickly locate the location & severity of the fire
- Locate tough hidden fires via thermal cues & clues
- Identify the flow path and the fires direction of travel
- Determine the most efficient access path & prevent rapid fire development
- Enhances stream placement by placing our streams where they are needed most.
Students will learn how to apply this information by understanding the following concepts:
- Tactical 360
- Identifying Flow Path, Fire Direction of travel, and Access points
- Go/No-Go Decision Making
- Enhanced Stream Placement
- Enhanced Search Methodology
This program is delivered in an 8 hour format, with videos, discussions, and classroom demonstrations by a Level I Thermography Certified Insight Fire Training Instructor. This program is peer reviewed, internationally recognized, and credentialed through Infrared Training Centers.

Simply put, we want to create a platform to bring high-level classroom and hands-on training to Colorado firefighters. As departments and firefighters realize an ever-increasing cost affiliated with sending people to national conferences and trainings, they have been scaling back on the number of people able to experience this type of learning. Through this conference, we will help individuals and departments gain invaluable training opportunities without ever having to leave the Denver-metro area…thus allowing more people to get the training at a lower cost to everyone.
This year, Insight Training proudly offers two sold out days of Live Fire Intelligently Aggressive Search Operations with Instructors: Thomas Anderson, Joey Baxa, and Jake Latson.
Participants in this course will learn to reinforce fundamental search techniques while enhancing search efforts. These concepts will allow firefighters to locate the victim, the fire, and other firefighters faster than ever before.
