“We need to stop trying to be good at making fast decisions and start learning how to make good decisions fast”
After recently attending Chief Rufer's TEN-23 class, I feel I may have one of the best “tools" in my bag. TEN-23 in my opinion is a must for any company officer, It’s an eye opening discussion that is well worth the time.

Skills that are PRACTICAL & EASY to use!
I attended TEN-23 at Monroe Fire School a couple years back and really enjoyed the class. It provides a lot of great tips and concepts that I've always kept in the back of my mind. Recently, as the first-in engine company, as I was doing my 360 of the structure and I found myself drawing on a lot of those concepts that Al's class provided. While the incident itself went smoothly, there's no doubt in my mind that some of the knowledge that I gained from TEN-23 helped me keep my crew as safe as they could by looking for the types of hazards and situations that can get us into trouble on the fireground.

2 Days Later
Only 2 days after I attended the Ten-23XL strategies and tactics class I had a chimney fire in which I was Incident Command. I could not believe how differently I looked at things. I would completely recommend this class to anyone from firefighter up to Chief. I hope that more members of my department will have the chance to attend this course in the future.
