There can never be enough second means of egress to make our fire scenes safer and provide for a more productive work place. In this 8-hour course, we will train on conventional and unconventional ground ladder skills in its entirety. Starting with ladder facts, we quickly proceed to: multiple ladder raises including; marquee and shoot raise, ally raise, upside down balcony raise, rope butt, chicken wing, etc. Moving on to; ground ladder victim removals from windows and roofs, hoisting, climbing techniques, alternative leg and arm locks, and more… All sections will conclude in various micro-scenarios to allow the student the ability to apply learned material in realistic time sensitive situations. After this course you will feel free of “ladder intimidation” and will find yourself throwing more ground ladders than ever before. Thus creating a safer fire scene for you and your members.
