By Vista Fire Department
February 5, 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 to operate the E-141& E-143 pump panel and how to operate an 1-3/4" hose line. 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 learning about vital signs in EMS (pulse, blood pressure, respirations, skin temperature, pupils, oxygen stat and blood sugar) followed by learning how to take a patient's pulse and blood pressure. 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.
