    Default Training

    I'm wondering if anybody has any thoughts on training as far as what they do on regular meetings. I'm in charge of my post and we have great training sessions but I wanted to introduce some new blood to the weekly event. Does anybody have any ideas or thoughts for good training thats fun quick and easy to set up?

    Get a engine/pumper and go out. Practice pulling line, wrapping a hydrant, advancing and retreating a line, and donuts with either 1.75" and/or 2.5". Or get a ladder truck and go out and do some ladder drills, climb up and down with and without tools, go through windows and onto roofs, practice searches, SCBA procedures (Low Profile, Emergency Escape, Etc) and get everyone familiar with engine and truck operations. Also if you got a rescue truck try and get some extrication time or at least get to help a crew do it so you know how its done.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm not sure what you mean by this...

    A "Junior" is similiar to a volunteer. In many cases, a "Junior" may have all the same training as a volunteer, or more. I have more EMS training as a Cadet Firefighter then some of the paid on call members of my department.

    I think you're looking at the training side of things on a small scale. There are ALOT of things that you as a teenager will not be able to do, like pack up, enter IDLH environments, go into burning structures, drive apparatus, run the extrication tools, etc.

    See your other post, and we'll go from there.

    You mean we can't drive at all, like pulling the engine out of quarters? And we can't run the extrication tools at all, even to just check them at the station? WHOOPS! I'm in trouble.

    If "Juniors" are driving apparatus, we have a problem.

    We have done many things for training. From an EMS standpoint, we practice BP, pulse, CPR, AED's, backboards, KED boards, bandaging, and splinting. On the fire side, we have a whole ist of stuff that we do. If anyone would like this for ideas, post your email and I'll get it to you. During some summer meetings we practice for our various competitions.
