I'll start off with one;
I drove around town and chose some addresses and set up a scenario. eg, 123 Main St. -bedroom fire on main floor. The guys had to drive over, take a look and write down resources needed, truck placement, rit setup, location of accountability, hydrant locations etc, etc.
It really got their minds working, got them to find some streets they may not have been familiar with, and since it was so hot out, they didn't have to wear gear, plus it was all real things that could happen.
They all were quite positive about it after!
Really got them thinking with the "22 foot boat about one third of the way out in the river, anchored, fully involved"! Some awesome suggestions came up!
I'm sure I'm not the only one who would benefit from others' experiences with training!
Our officers makes good training practices for us. Also, firefighters were asked to make up practices so everyone get involved.
We also did a fire fit practice were we had to pull a charged hose, move the dummy, climb stairs and rise a pack. Damn Perka for coming up with that idea... We had fun that day even if it was sweaty.
Hope that helped a bit.
It seems rather basic but you have to remember what comes as second nature for the experienced needs to be learned and practiced.
I got alot of great feedback from the crew on this one.

We have also used our tanker truck to simulate an oil truck leaking after an accident (using placards stuck on with tape) we have done territorial reconnaissance with different types of calls where we give an adress they must find, and give the proper information on the location, or switch things around, and give just the name of a company and they must find it and give the adress... as most, we do scba practises in the fire hall with dummies (and mannekins lol) but once in a while we throw a man down alert in there without telling them... and once they bring the dummy out, we have a cpr dummy to practise doing cpr on their victim... Everytime we can mix more than one type of practice together, we do it...
not to bash your sceneraio but if there was a gas leak I wouldn't be crawling inside looking for the leaky line...
