FIRE 252 - Advanced Firefighting - Truck Company Operations


3 hrs (Sem II)
Students will study truck company operations and the core skills that truck company members are required to perform on the fireground. The knowledge and skills provided are foundational and include, but are not limited to forcible entry, proper ladder placement and use, search, ventilation, vent-enter-search, and additional truck company related skills. The skills are designed to connect all aspects of truck company fireground operations from initial arrival to final overhaul and extinguishment. Live-fire scenarios are used to reinforce the skills under realistic conditions involving single-room fires in a multi-room occupancy. The lab portion of this class will be physically demanding and be done under safe and controlled simulated live fire conditions. Students are expected to hold Firefighter I & II certification or an equivalent. This course will demonstrate student knowledge and ability of PLO 2 and PLO 3 of the Fire Science and Safety program. 1 lecture hour, 2 laboratory hours.
