On any given day, a variety of specialized vehicles, utility trucks, and customized contractor's equipment travel through a department's response district. Lunch trucks, aerial bucket trucks, mobile electrical substations, small cranes, construction equipment, landscaping trailers, exterminator's vans, and similar vehicles can present unique challenges to firefighters when incidents involving these vehicles occur. Additionally, incidents involving more common vehicles such as vans and automobiles may expose first-responders to unforeseen hazards. This class will present scenarios and discuss case histories in order to provide information to attendees to assist them in their emergency scene decision-making, when encountering the more common and out-of-the-ordinary vehicles and equipment.
