THE URBAN TACTICS SEMINAR: If you're tired of being trapped in a boring classroom listening to a bunch of common knowledge, irrelevant information, repetitive safety statements, babbling bullshit, THE URBAN TACTICS BAR SEMINAR JUST MIGHT BE FOR YOU!
Each seminar is 2-3 hours and customized to the region hosting the event. Yes, we're going to fires (virtually) and discussing realistic effective tactics that have been successful in some of the busiest 'fire duty' cities for years, tactics that can be applied anywhere.
Replace that morning coffee with an evening cocktail..
Our bar seminars have been incredibly successful nationwide (FL-NY-NJ-PA-VA-GA-TX) but took a hit with the covid19 pandemic lockdown-restrictions severely hurting the bar and restaurant industry.
NOW WE ARE BACK IN FREE STATES..
Brian is a Bronx NY native who moved from Poughkeepsie NY to Trenton NJ in 1981 where he served time at Trenton State Prison (as a CO) and Camp Geiger NC in the USMC. After getting his GED, Brian went on to earn a masters degree graduating magnum cum laude from Hood University.
Prior to becoming a fireman, Brian held over 50 jobs from 14-27 yrs old while focusing on a failed amateur boxing career until he fell into the 90's party scene making appearances at over 1000 bars in 75 cities in 25 states. His lifelong dream of becoming a ghetto fireman came true in 1997. He favored the nozzle and tillerman position because he loved interior attack, throwing ladders, breaking shit, and being left the fuck alone at the firehouse because his side jobs in Jersey and Philadelphia bars kept him up late. He also had other plans..
The goal was to simultaneously live the life of a rock star "incapable of playing any instrument" while living in an urban rowhome, driving a busted jeep wrangler, and collecting as many insufficient fund ATM receipts and cash advance checks as possible to live out that dream, which was beyond successful..
Brian later turned his focus towards family and is currently married with 3 young children and very close to his retirement from the fire service. He currently resides in Hamilton NJ where he is writing a future best-selling book titled, "Lies, Pension Loans, Shore Houses & Scabs" while continuing his passion of speaking to firefighters all over the country.
Brian believes in old school, street smart, street credit instruction, realistic methods, relevant training, improvising, adapting, overcoming and not operating in robot mode, but rather thinking outside the box and achieving successful outcomes on the fireground by all means necessary.
Brian also encourages fighting the PC, woke culture that has infected the fire service like a cancer, in addition to the bullshit being peddled to young firefighters for profit only or by those who don't have their best interest. Brian warns that will have dire unintended consequences..
All firefighters, not just the company officer, should be well-oiled size-up machines with the mind constantly running, monitoring, evaluating, taking in everything the scene is giving them subconsciously while continually maintaining situational awareness. Take the job seriously and have the ability to perform numerous engine and truck tasks solo.
Remember, "You can still be 'into the job' without being fuckin goofy about it."
If you don't come away from the bar seminar more satisfied at the end than your enthusiasm in the beginning, Brian will stop speaking (or assume you had too much to drink).
Brian believes the key to living a long exciting life as a firefighter is not the "clean cab" concept, it's drinking black coffee in the morning, bourbon at night, water in between, surviving bad luck, and having a few beers with the guys after a good working fire back at the firehouse.
Brian likes to come up with more than one way to do shit others have been taught one way to do. Brian enjoys being realistic, slightly lazy, creative, freelancing, coming up with easier and better ways to complete the necessary tasks on the fireground..
The URBAN TACTICS BAR SEMINAR is offered anywhere in the US where there is demand for it.

This course will help prepare firefighters and company officers handle various emergencies involving high speed commuter rail, passenger trains, light rail service, conventional and CNG bus fires. Rapid transit is common in urban, suburban and metropolitan areas transporting thousands of commuters every hour.
Fire departments must prepare for passenger car and locomotive train fires, transit bus fires (CNG, Hybrid) extrications, pins, and other various emergencies on rail property.
It’s critical that ALL firefighters understand the dangers involving catenary, third rail, and diesel-electric propulsion in electrified territory and tactical considerations for train fires involving tunnels, bridges, elevated platforms, subways, and adjacent rail properties.
Basic train anatomy, safety procedures, tunnel ventilation systems, protective systems, proper tools and equipment for rescue incidents, extinguishing agents, and fire attack methods for Class A, B, C fires and maintenance trains will be reviewed.
This is a FIRE course for firefighters of all levels that concentrates on preparing FIRE departments for various emergencies and proper pre-planning for the types of rapid transit that service their particular district/response area.
Exact time and day TBA soon!
