This Sunday morning we held a "Motor Pump Operators & Firefighter 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 our Firefighters stretched an 1-3/4" hose line. Vista Firefighters practiced establishing a prime with Engine 142 and supplying water to Engine 143 where the 1-3/4" hose lines were in operation. 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.
