When a program is failing it's time to sit down and review. Is there any corruption in the program design?
Admissions and training that is effective, reliable and purposeful is what the public deserves. The operational ideal needs to be destroyed in programs that are vetted on it, and not on reality.
There is plenty of negative evidence with departments and personnel names attached to the videos and photos to fill our 'what not to do' archives. These are not going to come off the internet and can be used against them in a court of law. They are essentially uploading the evidence against them.
Let’s focus on the positives and lend these Coxswains the proper audience as guardians against reckless and negligent predatory range.
The evidence for that is the natural order of nature and its negative patterns of the following:
3. Disasters of various magnitudes
4. Human ignorance of adventure without preparation.
When exposed to something new in the training field we have drama as we call it, but it’s the complexity of danger and its friends. We must face this reality based monolith with courage and knowledge.
By incorporating effective training (emphasize effective) we learn how to adapt at every level of risk. This is a scale we drive and aim high for.
We train to be bigger than the chaos we are surrounded by.
Effective training is to assist and guide those to be exposed in a safe and leveled realm of the extent of our human capability in the risk we will respond to.
Its a complimentary need and oftentimes we are quite restricted.
Safety is a determinable scale.
Risk and chaos that is determined in the different types of call outs and environments can be overwhelming. Especially if the training is not set to meet the response. Personnel are held back to their last level of attainable skills or poor instruction.
Make sure you are aiming high and remain unreasonable to some degree. Why? Nature is not concerned with your program, but you better be concerned about the power of nature itself. It's in control 100% of the time and we need to learn to work with it, not beneath its scope.
Sometimes we just don't go, or we close a program, or we upgrade our capability.
