hot wash – n. a performance review, particularly after a training exercise or combat operation.1
Last weekend we finished up another recruit academy at my volunteer fire department. This photo was taken during the hot wash we held immediately after the full-scale final scenario. To my left in the photo, you’ll see my good friend, Bruce Bjorge. Like me, he’s recently ventured into the Fire & EMS Blogosphere. Check out his writing over at Firedog Talk.
