I have been reading all the messages that you all have written about equipment and what type of apparatus to respond and have found them very helpful. My town, which is volunteer, has a dedicated F.A.S.T. Team started and is trying to get a little direction in setting it up further. As of now, we dispatch a second ladder to the scene as the F.A.S.T. truck. Although, I do like the idea of using a heavy rescue for the F.A.S.T truck. What I would really like to know though, does anybody have minimum requirements and training for the firefighters to be on a F.A.S.T. Team? If nobody does, then I would appreciate some opinions or ideas on the subject. Thanks.
