Engine Operator – Street Smart – Hanahan, SC

October 3 - October 4


Engine Operator – Street Smart – Hanahan, SC
October 3-4, 2017 at 8:30 AM
Hanahan Fire Department Station 3 1101 Williams Lane in Hanahan, SC

About the class:
This program will provide a comprehensive review of the “real” role of the engine company operator. More than just driving a fire engine, this program will review the NFPA 1002, Standard for Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator Professional Qualifications.

While some fire departments have very thorough and structured programs used to select, train and guide engine company operators, others have none. Using several interactive exercises and videos, a review of “street smarts” will provide the participants comprehensive understanding of the engine company operator’s role.

The Lead Instructor: Capt. Chris Kelly, Houston Fire Department
Chris is a veteran of the fire service since 2002. Chris currently is a Captain in the Houston Fire Department, currently assigned to Engine 55 in District 46. Majority of his career has been spent in District 46, both as a firefighter and Engineer/Operator on both Engine and Ladder companies. He has been a Paramedic for the last ten years, which included being a founding member of the Houston Police Department’s Tactical Medic Team, working in the ambulance routing telemetry unit, and participating in multiple research and protocol revision projects.

For Details: Battalion Chief Ben Chinners
