FAIRFIELD — City Council gave the go-ahead Tuesday for a four-day workshop for the Fire Department to expand its incident command knowledge.
A $29,415 grant from the Urban Area Security Initiative will pay for a four-day workshop called Mastering Command – Calm the Chaos.
The class will help police, fire, public works and other essential government agencies work together more effectively, according to a staff report.
The Alameda County Sheriff’s Department administers the funds of the Urban Area Security Initiative for the Bay Area. Members of essential government agencies, including the nine Bay Area counties along with Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz, will be invited to participate in the proposed class.
Fifty people are in the class for the four consecutive days of training. Carmel-based Firefighter Inspiration Readiness & Education, which specializes in fire service leadership, strategic planning, command, tactics and officer development, would provide the training.
Anthony Kastros, a battalion chief with the Sacramento Metro Fire District, provides the workshop training.
Council members approved the consent calendar item without comment.
