Truck Ops Part 2-EHT Episode 036

Thu, 04/19/2018 - 18:43


This episode discusses the transitioning from an engine or other company to the truck company.  Your panel discusses the differences you can expect when operating on a truck company as opposed to the engine.

The experience of the panel offers a unique perspective that can be applied to any department.  Remember, it’s not the apparatus that makes the truck work, it’s the assignment and tasks performed.

Be sure to check out Mike Torres of the Chicago FD at FDIC 2018 teaching in the HOT class “It’s All About the Saws”

Catch Captain Arthur Ashley in his FDIC 2018 classroom session “Truck Company Operations without the Truck” on Thursday at 3:30 in room 231-233.
