Ladders and EMS In-Service Drills for 03/20/23

By Vista Fire Department
March 21, 2023

This week's Monday Night Drill was a "Ladders" drill for our Firefighters and an "EMS In-Service" drill for our EMTs.

The "Ladders" drill had our Vista Firefighters practicing proper ladder placement techniques, how to handle Firefighting roof operations and how to properly carry tools & equipment while operating on a ladder. It's crucial for Vista Firefighters to practice ladder operations as it's an important task on the emergency scene. Ladder operations are essential when it comes to venting a structure or giving Firefighters a way to exit a building should they need to if situations worsen.

The "EMS In-Service" drill had our Vista EMS personnel conducting practical skills evaluations and reviewing the medications we carry on our Ambulances for various different types of responses. Vista EMS personnel reviewed medications such as epinephrine, aspirin, albuterol and narcan. This type of drill is part of the annual in-service training that our EMS personnel have to go through every year.
