L-180, Human Factors in The Wildland Fire Service
The L-180, Human Factors in the Wildland Fire Service, online course exposes students to human performance concepts as part of basic wildland firefighter training. The course is specifically designed for entry-level operational personnel; however, this course also applies to all wildland fire service personnel, including non-operational personnel.
At the end of the online course, students will be able to practice decision-making skills in an interactive simulation as a member of a fire crew, and students will apply their Human Factors knowledge to a variety of scenarios. Throughout the simulation, students will answer questions and make decisions regarding situation awareness and hazard identification, decision-making, and team cohesion. Responses are tracked, and then reported at the end of the activity.
