This interactive class is about challenging the role of the driver operator on the fireground. With manpower shortages facing most fire service agencies in the country, it is vital to have an all-hands-on-deck approach to fireground tasks for the safety of our members and the public we serve. This class looks at fireground support tasks that can be completed by the driver operator outside the IDLH space. These tasks will improve the safety and efficiency of the company. The driver operator is often an underutilized resource on an incident scene. When interior crews press into a structure for task completion in an ultra-high hazard environment, their safety relies heavily on the individual standing outside at a pump panel. An efficient fireground relies on ALL players to be highly trained and highly engaged in the incident.
