Truck Academy

This very aggressive, hands-on 3-5 day program, incorporates truck company operations, truck company officer strategy and tactics, aerial apparatus practices, rapid intervention team concepts capped off with live fire exercises. Our staff instructors will bring their “best practices” and “down and dirty” skills showing how they can work for your department.

For the greatest impact, a training facility capable of supporting live fire exercise is critical. We would like to invite manufacturer’s representatives to make available demo apparatus and equipment for the program, making this a “win win” for the students, the vendors and the instructors. Obviously, additional apparatus and other logistical needs will  have to be met to support the program.

The Topics:
The basics to the advanced

  • Ventilation
  • Laddering
  • Forcible Entry
  • Ground Ladders
  • Search and Rescue
  • Overhaul
  • Controlling Utilities

While this program is ideally offered as a 3-5 day offering,  it can be adjusted in to accommodated local scheduling needs, compressing the program to need available time constraints.
