Saturday, July 25, 2020, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
One of the most underutilized positions within the fire service is the engine driver. This course will give attendees a look at how to utilize the driver focusing on four key elements. The first is how the driver can be an informal leader in the station. Next will be attitudes and behaviors to have and not to have during the emergency response. Third is various tasks the driver has on scene, including assisting with size-up, ensuring proper positioning, crew accountability, and being a safety officer. Finally, after the incident, ensuring the apparatus is ready for the next run.
