DIY Engine

Course Description:

This class will go over the basic principles and practices that a short-staffed engine company needs to be proficient in when arriving first due to a fire and additional help is several minutes away.

We will cover skills and techniques including masking up skills, forcible entry, 1-2 firefighter hose line stretching and advancing, loss of water options, various search techniques on and off the hose line, and victim drags and removal, all with a focus on problem-solving, communicating and adapting to rapidly changing circumstances on the fire ground.
