The day is spent on the drill ground honing truck company fireground tasks and skills. Participants will be placed in groups and practice search priority and techniques, VES operations, outside vent (OV) duties, ladder packages and deployments, and forcible entry. Participants will put their skills to practice in numerous building fire scenarios. Participants will sit in multiple seats on each apparatus and run multiple different evolutions. Each evolution is designed to challenge the participants to make decisions regarding search, ventilation, VES, forcible entry, and ground ladders.
