About the program:
Chauffeurs will gain a new appreciation for their role in the truck company.  The goal is to prepare the chauffeur with an operational understanding of his responsibilities and his apparatus through a mix of class room lecture and interactive exercises, followed by extensive “in the street” exercises.

Students will  gain a working knowledge of the use and operations of aerial apparatus and role that aerial apparatus plays in both offensive and defensive truck company operations. Upon completion of this program the student will demonstrate safe, operational  positioning, setup for offensive and  defensive tactical operations. Students will participate in depth perception, raising & lowering, extending in and out, scrub of the building and rotation drills. Placement for defensive operations using aerial master streams and techniques using aerial apparatus for special operations are also incorporated in the program. Enrollment is VERY limited!
