Take Your Search Skills to the Next Level!

Entry Img

Safe Firefighter, LLC will be presenting 2 search classes in Beaufort, South Carolina on September 18, 2013. These classes will provide updated search techniques to help you to make your searches safer and more efficient. Primary search can present numerous challenges for those faced with completing one of the most important fireground tasks. Rapidly deteriorating conditions, building layout, short staffing all are factors that limit our ability to safely perform our most important priority.
