Recruit Training Class #11 – Ladders/Ventilation Practicals (Photos by Retired Firefighter Steve Blanchard) - February 29, 2020

Recruit Training Class #11 was Ladders and Ventilation (practical).  During this practical course our new Firefighters are taught different ladder raises and carries by our experienced group of Recruit Trainers.  The class is then split into two groups, with half practicing ladders and the other half concentrating on hydraulic, mechanical, and roof ventilation using our training building and one of the roof cut props. What a tremendous value to being able to have our new Firefighters practice real life scenarios under one roof in our own backyard. (Photo’s by Retired Firefighter, Steve Blanchard)
