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.
