Course Description - Truck Company Operations I
This 3-day course is pure Truck Company Operations. A morning lecture identifies fireground truck company operations, including riding positions and assignments, search, ventilation, tools, and the inside/outside team concept. Hands on skill stations are conducted, under increasingly realistic conditions, to build solid truck company skills. Day 3 is all scenario-based under live fire conditions, performing as members of a truck company.
Note: This course is run simultaneously with the Engine Company Operations course -- providing realistic fireground working conditions and communication challenges between crews.
