Engine Company Operations: Positioning, Pumping, and Problem Solving

Thursday, April 18
Classroom Session
Engine Company

The engine company is the backbone of all fireground operations. While the firefighters and officers on the hoselines get the glory, the pump operators must be on their game to ensure that the interior crews have the water they need to extinguish the fire. This all begins with the receiving of the alarm. Routes of travel, positioning, charging lines (properly), establishing a supply, and being able to troubleshoot any issues that may arise are all critical skills the pump operator must be proficient in. This class will identify best practices and common mistakes made and how to overcome them.
