In this class, attendees will review single firefighter carry of various ladders, ranging from 14-foot roof ladders to 35-foot extension ladders. Transition from carry to raise will be practiced, so that the attendee can safely increase their speed of placing ladders on a residential structure. Form and speed will be stressed, to ensure, safe carries and raises of ground ladders, while at the same time efficiently moving on the fireground. Attendees will be given a simulated scenario, as the first-due ladder company, and will be timed at emptying all ground ladders off of the first-due ladder truck.
