Sunday Training for 11/04/18
 
By Vista Fire Department
November 5, 2018
 

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

This Sunday's "MPO & Firefighter Skills Class" had our Firefighting personnel pumping E-141 & E-143 while Firefighters stretched an 1-3/4" and 2-1/2" hose lines to practice hose line advancement. This type of training is what will help our prospective Apparatus drivers to become cleared drivers in our Department as well as 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 Sunday's "EMT Skills Class" had our EMS personnel reviewing medical and trauma assessments during an emergency. This type of training is what will prepare our EMT Candidates who are planning to take a future EMT Basic class and for our EMTs who have completed EMT Basic to keep up with their skills.
