Sunday Training for 11/05/17
 
By Vista Fire Department
November 6, 2017
 

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 learning how to operate the E-142 pump panel, how to extend an 1-3/4" hose line and how to properly operate a nozzle. This type of training is what will help our Firefighters who plan on 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 the Ambulance inventory by reviewing how each piece of equipment on our Ambulances is used, how to respond during a hip fracture call scenario and how to properly use the Lucas CPR machine during a cardiac arrest call. 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.
