Truck Operator Training for Real Life

Friday, April 28
This class will explore the job of the aerial driver and operator beyond basic training. It will dive into the information drivers need to know that may not be readily available: the newer trucks and what safety systems there are and can be in place and their pros and cons; how the specification process and final inspection can alter the operations of the apparatus; the operator's manual and what information is extremely valuable to the driver/operator; some common department policies that can guide or hinder the operator; and tactical positioning of the apparatus and how to maximize the vehicle's use.
