This is the first class of a series laying the foundation for basic fire fighting skills and "hands on" activities of a first responder. Beginning with personal safety, fire behavior, the hands-on fundamentals of utilizing self contained breathing apparatus, ladder raising and climbing skills as well as hose loads and advances. A portion of class will deal with the rudimentary principles of pumping apparatus for the purpose of maintaining an adequate fire stream. Although thorough in its scope, this should be considered a starting point for departments with a young and inexperienced roster. A great class for the veterans to refresh their skills and mentor the new firefighters on the department rolls. NOTE: Protective Clothing Required -- Participants must furnish approved helmet, turn out gear, eye protection, gloves, SCBA and boots for this class. This course is delivered at local fire departments
