									 Annual Firefighter Skills Checklist
 Every year, all volunteer firefighters of the Cabinet View Fire Department should have all of
 the following skills signed off. Most of these will be accomplished by attending the regular, bi-
 weekly training meetings (every other Wednesday); other skills signoffs may require
 additional time appointments to demonstrate the skill being signed off on.

 Many of the skills on this checklist are also required for structure Firefighter 1 qualification and
 for the basic wildland fire “red card” certification. Many volunteer firefighters can get both
 checklists signed off concurrently.

 We will offer training opportunities throughout the year, with regularly scheduled training
 nights every other Wednesday. Twenty to 30 training hours a year qualifies a firefighter for
 Montana State retirement benefits under the MCA’s. CPR, Firefighter I, Fire Officer, wildland
 fire courses, vehicle extraction, hazardous materials, airport safety, and other training will be
 offered as part of the Fisher River, Marion, and Cabinet View joint training curriculum.




 Preface

 The subjects listed on this checklist will form the basis of the material used for our yearly
 firefighter training. It is everyone’s responsibility to have the listed items signed and dated by
 one of our Officers as each firefighter completes training in these subjects. Officers will sign
 this checklist only when each firefighter has demonstrated competency within each subject.

 All standards are referencing the latest edition of our SOP for training, consistent with NFPA
 specifications, NWCG specifications, and appropriate IFSTA Manuals. The responsibility shall be
 that of each firefighter to show documentation for references when asked by the company
 Officer.

 Everyone’s Skills Checklist will be evaluated quarterly to measure progress of its completion.
 It must be completed and filed with the Training Officer (Steven Mast) no later than the first
 training meeting in January of the following year.
