About the class
This course features a combination of lecture and discussion followed by a series of field exercises. Effective engine company operations don’t happen by mistake. They are achieved by having sound fundamental practices. Integration and repetition make layouts, hose line selection, management and advancements second nature. Achieving required fire flow, coordinating the attack with the truck company are just a few of the topics that will be covered. Our instructors will take you through various drills that will challenge the most confident engine companies. From the rookie firefighter to the seasoned company officer, the program is a must!
