ONE DAY CLASS - Saturday OR Sunday
Gaining access to roofs and upper stories of multistoried structures is essential for rescue, ventilation, and other fire suppression activities. Whether you are looking for an introduction to fire service ground ladders or looking to refresh your basic skills, this course will cover the foundational ladder skills needed on today’s fireground. Lack of knowledge of proper ladder procedures can result in sustaining severe injuries that can be permanently disabling or even fatal. Every fire fighter must know how to lift, carry, position, raise, secure, climb, and work from fire service ladders. After students complete this hands-on training, they will understand the proper handling, use, and placement of fire service ladders. Students will practice the skills of operating hose lines and performing victim rescue from ground ladders.
Prerequisites: Minimum age is 18 (due to working from heights). PPE and SCBA are required for each student.
