We have been developing our Firefighting courses to meet your training needs.
Engine Company Operations
Hose work is the foundation of the fire service and is often the determining factor on successful fireground operations. Our basic engine class examines the primary role of the engine company and teaches students various techniques on stretching & advancing hose lines.
For many departments, fires in buildings equipped with a standpipe system are a low frequency high risk operation. This class will provide students with a greater understanding of standpipe systems, hydraulic theory, and typical fire conditions, and provide them with the skills to operate effectively when faced with a standpipe operation.
Ladder Company Operations
This class will introduce students to the various fireground functions encompassing "Truck Work" Topics covered will include Inward/Outward forcible entry, Primary Search techniques from the camera to the can, Ground laddering, Venting & VEIS, as well as vertical ventilation with both flat & peaked roof ops.
Developing Ladder Co. Priorities
This is an all encompassing class focused on teaching the basics of truck work for structural firefighting. Students will learn the skills nesecary to accomplish critical functions on the fireground. Basic forcible entry, ventilation, V.E.S., ground laddering, and aerial operations will all be covered extensively.
Vent Enter Search (V.E.S.)
This class will provide students with the critical skills needed to perform coordinated ventilation, as well as entry and search at structural fires. Through a classroom session and practical skill stations students will learn the tactical principles associated with the Outside Vent position (O.V.)
This class will focus on developing skills performing vertical ventilation on both peaked and flat roofs. Students will review and perform various options for accessing the roof, safe operations while on the roof, as well as identifying natural openings to be vented at a fire.
R.I.T. / Survival
Students begin by reviewing case studies of historic fatal fires to identify the root causes of exactly what went wrong. Factual accounts, through the use of audio & video are used to describe the sequence of events leading up to the May Day, and the actions of the rescue teams are examined and their successes and failures are discussed.
We have been developing our Technical Rescue Courses to meet your training needs.
TECHNICAL RESCUE COURSES
Students are introduced to the basics of high and & low pressure airbag systems. Topics include bag construction, system set up, capabilities & limitations, safe operating techniques and developing an understanding of rated capacity and the diminishing power curve.
This class is designed to challenge the students with technically involved stabilization scenarios in order to build upon their skill set using strut & jack systems. Students will be introduced to the latest, most advanced equipment such as Res-q-jacks, Paratech Gold Struts, Rescue 42 and more as they deal with evolutions involving both light & heavy vehicles in compromising positions.
The Principles of Lifting & Stabilization
Stabilizing, lifting & capturing are the 3 vital components associated with a successful lifting operation. Remove any one of these and the results could be disastrous for the victim & rescuers. This class is designed to provide students with a better understanding of the lifting & stabilization equipment typically used in the fire service.
