Sunday Training for 12/03/17
 
By Vista Fire Department
December 4, 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-141, E-142 & E-143 pump panel, how to extend an 1-3/4" hose line and how to operate an SCBA. 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 reviewing the "EMS ABCs" (Airway, Breathing and Circulation) and the vital signs that EMTs monitoring during an emergency 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.
