Truck Functions School
The truck company, or companies conducting truck functions, have various options to support the fire attack. These companies can be split into two teams, “The Two Team Concept,” The Outside Team, and The Inside Team. Each team has priorities to accomplish and can include: Inside team-locate, confine and transmit fire location, primary search, checking for extension and overhaul. The Outside team options are vent-enter-search (VES), outside vent, gaining access, vertical ventilation, and aerial operations (if arriving on an aerial apparatus). In this 3-day class, participants will be allowed to practice some skills to conduct these functions successfully.
