Online Exclusive Weekly Drill: No. 24

Drill # 24: Truck Company Operations - Part 2

This drill details the acronym LOVERSĀ U for the basics of truck company operations at structure fires. Whether your departments operates a "true" truck or not, these components are essential to every fireground.

The drill is designed to be a single page of information to conjure up discussions among your crew members. Sit down and talk about the exercises, and how they may apply to your company. But, just don't read them. Get moving. Head to an appropriate area, and train.

Post the information in prominent places in your stations so it's readily available for review.

Please remember to check your Standard Operating Procedures or Guidelines (SOPs/SOGs) before using the drill.
