Weekly Drill: No. 149 - Apparatus Placement

Drill #149: Apparatus Placement

Readers will learn that apparatus needs to be positioned where it can be utilized most effectively. This starts by having an understanding of the capabilities of the apparatus and then utilizing it to the maximum.

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.
