STRETCHING FOR SUCCESS - The Engine Company's Guide to Winning - June 6, 2019

LT. Steve Robertson

What puts out fires? It's still water. This class is about engine company priorities and tactics. Topics covered are selecting and placing the first handling in service; apparatus placement, line selection, matching the proper nozzle of the proper line, and line placement. Overcoming difficult stretches, vertical stretches, and short staffed stretching are also covered. In this ever-evolving modern fire environment, special emphasis must be on selecting and placing the first line correctly. We must put ourselves in a position to stretch for success.
