Not sure what the new standards are for Phone Up (radio / land line) training. It used to be that you had to do a number of events before getting the training.

As for fire training not sure what the Education team (Judy + team) has in mind for this season yet. Maybe someone can contact either Judy directly or a board member foo MMS ?

Hi Mike,

Depends, if you work around race cars that do unpredictable things on the track, then catch fire, then you are good to go. ;)

The fire training within the racing community differs in a few things and in no particular order:
1. How do you carry the 10, 20 or 30 pound bottle to the incident
2. How do you separate yourself from oncoming traffic and still be able to fight the fire
3. Where is the wind blowing, how do you position yourself between the fire and wind direction
4. Does the car have nitrogen filled canisters in their bumpers
5. Did the driver turn off all the electrical on the car, if not where is the sucker (switch) :woohoo:
6. Is the driver out of the car, is he or she on fire
7. Is it a brake fire only
8. Can you see the flames, what type of fuel is this car carrying - regular leaded, alcohol, methanol, electric only, something new - Class A B C or "D"
9. How much time is left on my bottle
10. Is my new rain suit fire retardant or will it melt on my nice whites

These are some off the top of my old brain.... there could be some more..... Although most of the questions above you can answer with a track walk or by asking your fellow white suits.... there are some you need to need to find out on the fly.
