Sunday Training for 02/10/19
 
By Vista Fire Department
February 11, 2019
 

This Sunday morning we held a "Firefighter Skills Class," a "Motor Pump Operators Class," and Driver Training for our members who are becoming Apparatus Drivers on the Ambulances & Engine 142 for our weekly Sunday Training.

This Sunday's "Firefighter Skills Class" focused on reviewing how to operate both a pressurized and dry hydrant on an emergency scene. 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 Sunday's "Motor Pump Operators Class" had our prospective apparatus drivers going over drafting operations and how to operate the pump panel on Engine 141. This type of training is what will help our prospective Apparatus Drivers/MPOs become cleared drivers on Engine 141.
