This Sunday morning we held an "MPO & Firefighter Fundamentals Class" and an "EMT Fundamentals Class" for our weekly Sunday Training.

This Sunday's "MPO & Firefighter Fundamentals Class" focused on pumping Engine 143 while our Firefighters practiced flowing 1-3/4" hose lines. This type of training is what will help our Firefighters who are currently attending the New York State Firefighter I program succeed in their class and for our Firefighters who have completed Firefighter I to keep up with their skills.

This week's "EMT Fundamentals Class" had our EMTs & EMT Candidates going over splinting. They reviewed how to splint for knee injuries, how to do an "ankle hitch," how to create a harness for a patient, how to make a "sling and swathe" with triangular bandages & cravats, how to make a tourniquet and how to tie a surgeons knot. This type of training is what will prepare our EMT Candidates who are preparing themselves for a future EMT-Basic class and for our EMTs who have completed EMT-Basic to keep up with their skills.
