Testimonials from UK Fire and Rescue Services that have attended:
Just a thank you for sourcing and planning this week’s 3 day ‘Command and Control of Maritime emergencies course’… From a personal point of view I found the course really beneficial. From an organisational perspective the training was relevant to our local maritime risks and, by delivering the training alongside our Humberside FRS colleagues it provided a good opportunity for shared learning and interoperability.
The course was excellent. Over the three days we blended the theory and knowledge with the practical application of those skills in table top exercises. We came away with a greater degree of confidence and respect for what is required to command a fire in a maritime environment. The unique nature of that environment makes it essential that existing commanders develop their skills with focused training such as this and I am very grateful to the trainers for imparting their knowledge and experience during the course.
I & my colleagues attended the Course as part of an all wales update in marine firefighting & incident management. We all found the course very beneficial, with good theoretical awareness & practical table top exercises that encouraged interaction and incident command. The course was definitely beneficial and the service will be looking into exposing other Tactical officers to the course to improve awareness.
A fire on a vessel is undoubtedly one of the most hostile environments a Firefighter could be subjected to. The successful Command and Control of a Maritime Incidents is crucial to Firefighter safety. The depth of experience and knowledge of the instructor cohort in this specialist subject is obvious. This gave the course a level of credibility and authenticity that is not always apparent.

The Course was fast paced and the input extremely interactive, with a impressive blend of case studies, assessments and presentations, but what struck me most was the knowledge of the facilitators, There was challenge in our thinking and debate, but the knowledge imparted in such a short time by subject matter experts, has gone some way to enhancing JFRS resilience and capability as well as confidence in providing, improving and maintaining a stable and effective Maritime Firefighting/reconnaissance response.
The training provided me with a greater insight into the overall Command and Control considerations for maritime incidents, with a mixture of theory, case studies and table top exercises to consolidate the learning. A very worthwhile course for Fire Officers who work in Services that have the risk of maritime incidents.
The course content was tailored exactly to our need to build specific knowledge and a tactical capability for our officers who will attend Maritime Incidents. The course delivery by experienced and knowledgeable facilitators, was engaging, challenging and professionally presented.
