Valencia’s Advanced Specialized Training for Fire offers classes to help you update your Fire knowledge. Instruction is given on the most recent updates, newest topics and latest equipment.
This course is aimed at firefighters who are assigned to a truck company or an engine company, and are expected to perform truck company functions at a fire scene.
Truck Company Operations does not focus on the appropriate use of a tower truck apparatus. Instead, it provides education and hands on training in the functions normally performed by a truck company crew. Topics covered are:
• Ventilation practices
• Forcible entry functions
• Search tactics
• Building construction
• Ground ladder placement
• Use of various power tools
• RIT concepts
• Elevator rescue.
Students are required to provide their own personal protective equipment, including bunker gear, Nomex hood, gloves, eye protection, and steel-toed boots
