Apparatus operators play a critical role in the efficiency and safety of the crew yet rarely does training go beyond driving or pump operations. This class will look at the role the apparatus operator plays in improving response times, not through speed, but through turn out times, area familiarization and an understanding of traffic patterns and impediments. The presenter will also discuss the responsibility and importance of truck checks on crew safety and efficiency and the role of the apparatus operator in cancer prevention. Other topics include equipment staging, mayday and RIT operations, apparatus placement, water supply and much more.
