This Sunday morning we held a "Motor Pump Operators & Firefighter Skills Class" and an "EMT Skills Class" for our weekly Sunday Training.
This Sunday's "Motor Pump Operators & Firefighter Skills Class" had our Firefighting personnel pumping Engine 142 & Engine 143 while reviewing how each Engine would be used during water supply operations. Probationary Firefighters also reviewed fire behavior, the types of building construction and how a size up is conducted. 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 how to properly splint a patient, how to use the stair chair on an emergency scene and an overview of various equipment on Ambulance 84B1. This type of training is what will prepare our EMT Candidates who are planning to take a future EMT Basic class succeed and for our EMTs who have completed EMT Basic to keep up with their skills.
