Truck Company Operations

dsc04228Truck companies are tasked with a wide number and variety of tasks at a structural fire, all of which are essential to a successful outcome. Yet at many firegrounds there are a limited number of truck companies – or none at all… “Truck work” is about the skills, not the vehicle. Even if you operate with no “ladder truck”, the truck-related tasks still must be performed. This 16-hour class is appropriate for departments with or without aerial apparatus.

This course is designed to provide firefighters with the knowledge and skills to operate as effectively as a possible during ladder company operations. This includes accomplishing multiple tasks, in multiple locations, simultaneously and safely. Firefighters of all experience-levels will benefit because the material is based upon “street-proven” best practices.
