Sunday Training for 01/07/18
 
By Vista Fire Department
January 8, 2018
 

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 centrifugal pumps work by going over single stage versus 2-stage pumps and the proper techniques of Forcible Entry. 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 EMS personnel conducting an Ambulance Inventory review, what type of equipment is located in an EMTs jump bag and they held a couple rounds of "EMS trivia" for our members. 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.
