First-Due Engine: The First Five Minutes
Date & Time
Saturday, July 25, 2020, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Whether you’re a firefighter, apparatus operator, or officer on the first-due engine, you have a vital role to play in the first five minutes and beyond. In this session, the presenter will explore the “bread-and-butter” operations of the first-due engine company and how everyone’s role supports and builds upon the others. The presenter will look at size-up and the survivability profile; water supply and handline placement, whether to go traditional, transitional, or defensive and a whole lot more. Strategic and tactical considerations will also be discussed. This interactive program emphasizes best practices and uses high-impact case studies.
