Yukon Firefighter Basic

0 student

Fire Fighter Basic is the first level for trained firefighters. To advance to Firefighter Basic you have to acquire knowledge and skills. The learning is divided into a number of Job Performance Requirements (JPR) for which you will have to study and practice. Each JPR requires you to complete an open book Quiz that you will hand to the Training Officer and has a practical component where your knowledge and practical skills are evaluated by an evaluator.

This course aims to teach you the knowledge portion towards mastering the JPRs. Weekly general practice and practice towards JPRs will provide you with the skills to complete the JPRs.

You will have to have consent from your fire chief, submit a clear vulnerable sector check, fill out forms with the Yukon Fire Marshal’s Office, undergo a medical exam, and receive your accountability tags before you are legally allowed to train with one of Yukon’s volunteer fire departments.

Some of what you learn is based on National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) or other codes or standards. Other learning is based on Yukon Fire Marshal’s Safe Operating Procedures (FMO SOPs). Some learning may be based on Hootalinqua VFD procedures, and some may be based on common sense. Necessarily some learning will be based on Yukon environmental factors, such as remoteness and extreme cold.

The Course is divided into sections. Each section represents a JPR or other important unit of learning. Each section is divided into lessons.

At times, quizzes will help you to determine how well you know your subjects. Most of these questions will be single choice or true and false. Some questions may be very easy some are not. With some questions, it may be difficult to determine what they ask… Wherever we are using FMO’s chapter review questions, we kept the original wording. You will have to fill out and submit a copy of the filled out FMO chapter review questions to the training officer who will have to grade them. This is an open book exercise. At the end of the FFB course, you will have to take a closed book exam where you have to answer a selection of 50 chapter review questions. The passing grade is 70%. To make sure you will pass that exam, for the purpose of this course, we set the passing grade to 80%.
