Many years ago I visited a large Fire Department Training Academy and
was told that they, basically, had dispensed with written training
materials, relying instead on oral and hands-on presentations of the
information and related hands-on practice.

Can any one tell me if this is the case nowadays in any large Fire

On the other hand, are there large FDs that require fire recruits to
learn material from a written text without associated lecture and
hands-on presentations and practice?
