Tatics On Tap- Laddering with a purpose.

20.00

Join us July 15th, at The Mill on Round Lake ( 2121 Route 9, Round Lake, NY) from 3:30-6:30 for a casual lecture on laddering. Light fare will be served at 5:00, cash bar. 

Fire-ground laddering has been moved down the list of priorities in many fire departments.  This could be caused by cuts to departments and apparatus or a shift in a department's priorities both voluntary and forced.  Some departments have realized engine companies put out fires and have difficulty justifying the need for a truck company or even see the need for truck work to be a priority.

Truck company tasks are present at every fire.  Being able to perform those tasks efficiently can change the course of an incident.  This class will focus on the lost art of ladder work.

We’ll touch on basic ground and aerial laddering skills, ladder priorities for engine and truck companies, laddering tactics, working safely and effectively from ladders, ways to become more comfortable on ladders, flow then throw scenarios for engine operators, options instead of throwing ladders, tips for effective use of aerials and tower ladders as well as tower and ladder company drills.
