    Default Training For Junior Members

    Hello,

    I am Currently 17 years of age, So this won't go with me long, But assumming we have many more Explorers Younger than I am, It will Help.

    I would like to get some Training Video's and Tactics of FireFighter's in action.

    Such as, Gearing Up, Packing Out, Rolling the Trucks, Going On Scene, Walking the Parameters, Putting out the fire, Cleaning Up, Rolling hoses Etc etc.

    This can be for wrecks, house fires, Ridge Fires Or anything of the like.

    Also, Any other Training Tactics you have for your Juniors/Explorers would be nice.

    If you have any, please contact me in anyway, I would love to have some of these.

    My first answser is to try a search on here - If you already tried that, try a little harder.
    The obvious - www.YouTube.com and Google. And there's www.VentEnterSearch.com.
    There's probably thousands of places to look for videos...

    My words stated here do not necessarily point towards organizations which I am affiliated with.

    Explorer programs usually range of age from 14-21 so there is a wide array of ages. Usually your training is specific depending on your department, meaning they have thier own evolutions. Are you a current explorer?

    Currently, Yes I am an Explorer.

    Out Explorer Programs ages range from 14-21, But! At the age of 18, You have the choice whether to continue with the Explorer Program, or move on into a Fire Fighter Based course.

    Hey, I'm currently doing both the Junior Dept. and regular Dept. I'm the training officer for the junior members until I turn 21. Currently we're going through the Basic Firefighting Handbook.
