Structure Firefighters Competency and Training Playbook
The purpose of the BC Firefighters Training Playbook is to ensure competency in a very high risk position. Under paragraph 3(3)(b) of the Fire Services Act (B.C.), the Fire Commissioner is required to establish the minimum standards of training required for fire services personnel in British Columbia. This Playbook sets out a competency-based ladder that provides for a minimum level of sequential training and operational requirements that must be met by each fire department. The Authority Having Jurisdiction will set the Service Level (refer to pages 10, 17 and 18) to be provided by its fire department, which in turn determines the minimum training Competencies that must be met by that department. The Playbook establishes the minimum training Competencies required and the standards from which they are drawn.
