Nozzle Forward Training Class - June 13th & 14th, 2020 POSTPONED
May 6, 2020

The "Nozzle Forward" class scheduled for June, has been postponed. A date is being worked on for the fall and once the final details are confirmed, we will pass them along. If you were registered and paid, payment will be returned in the near future. Any questions, please email


This two-day class will integrate the three major components of engine company work; fire behavior, hose management, and fire attack. Aaron Fields who is a firefighter for the City of Seattle, the OG of the Nozzle Forward, leads this class. The one thing that every fire department in the country has is fire hose. The one event that happens on every single fire is a hose-line gets pulled and water gets flowed. The Nozzle Forward is a class for engine company crews. It is not a collection of technique; it is an adaptable system of hose line management and fire attack. It is focused around fighting fire, interior offensive firefighting, aggressive firefighting, for which we will never apologize.

Aggressive firefighting is not the problem, it is the solution. The goal of the “The Nozzle Forward” is to help craft more efficient Engine Companies by increasing the individuals’ competency with their tools and expanding on the conceptual aspects of the fire environment.
