The responsibilities of the first-in truck company will be discussed. Topics including the deploying, raising, and climbing of ladders will be covered. Additionally, forcible entry operations, controlling utilities, and ventilation will be included. Crew members of the first-in truck will need to be proficient working off ladders, performing ladder rescues, using tools off ladders, as well as roof ladder deployment. During this course, students will review tools available locally for forcible entry, ventilation, and overhaul skills and become familiar with their proper application.
