TRUCK COMPANY ESSENTIALS
Lead Instructor: Lieutenant Michael Ciampo,
Fire Department of New York
Students rotate through a series of stations to get
a “taste” of truck company operations in this new
interactive class. At the Forcible Entry station, students learns how
to force inward- and outward-opening doors and to cut simulated
window bars and roll-down gates. At the Ladders station, they
learn portable ladder operations that include new leg-lock
maneuvers and to perform simulated rescues and removals. At the
Ventilation station, they perform horizontal and vertical ventilation
on the acquired structures. At the Search station, they conduct
primary search and perform vent-enter-search tactics and overhaul
skills while searching for fre extension.
