First Engine Due
Engine Operations for the WIN! We cover the make and break operations of the first arriving company. These skills are beyond advancing until you see fire and opening the nozzle. We will examine your attack package and develop a solid foundation that allows you to flow water while you advance, preventing any rapid fire development. Also covered is the front end set up and the successful deployment of attack lines, the one thing that every Fire Department must be good at executing.
