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 Tanker 4 for our weekly Sunday Training.
This Sunday's "Firefighter Skills Class" had our Firefighting personnel reviewing how to conduct forcible entry operations and an introduction into how to operate a Fire Apparatus pump panel. 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 how to operate the Engine 142 pump panel. Vista Firefighters reviewed how to pull a prime with E-142, how to operate the deck gun and how to fill Tanker 4 while operating as a water source. This type of training is what will help our prospective Apparatus Drivers become cleared drivers on Engine 142.
