Engine Company Basics

The purpose of this class is to provide and demonstrate practical drills that members of an engine company can perform to be proficient at one of the most important jobs at a fire scene: PUT THE FIRE OUT! Attendees will learn to provide practical information to be proficient at your duties as a member of an engine company; to establish a baseline method to practice and perform engine company work regularly using proven techniques to overcome challenges on the fireground; and to learn the duties and skills of an engine company member correctly and efficiently through interactive discussions and video demonstration. The course ideology is based on the principle that no matter what size fire department you are a member of (volunteer, paid, large or small) a fire engine is your core apparatus. The engine company is the foundation of a fire department utilized to mitigate a fire incident.
