Structurally Sound

How do you know if a building/roof is structurally sound? You will have the hook tool and on the roof, you will hit it with force but be gentle this is to tell if the roof is sound, this also helps for venting the roof. If it is sound you can vent as needed, if not get off the roof. It’s harder to tell if a building itself is sound but gently on all sides, Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, and Delta side check the walls and as entering check the floor and roof ahead of you with the hook.


Names of the Sides

How do you know what side is A, B, C, D? Traditionally the Alpha side of the building is the side with the front door, and then you work clockwise around the building. Knowing what side is what is helpful as the terms Alpha side, Bravo side, etc will be used often.


Buddy System

As a firefighter on the first day of cadet schooling, you will be shown the proper way of the buddy system. Firefighters never go in alone, never ever this is for one our safety, and two for all of the community and families. We always go home at the end of our shifts and it is because of the buddy system.


Hose Line

It is the job of our crew members to always make sure the hose line is one, straightened out with no kinks or holes. Our hoses are nice, clean and neat fire hoses and they are to be respected as if it were something you truly cared for. There are people who connect the hose and also ones carrying the hose and the nozzle-men.



Fires can be classified in five different ways depending on the agent that fuels them Class A, Class B, Class C, Class D, and Class K

Class A - They involve solid combustible materials such as wood, paper, cloth, trash, or plastic.

Class B - They involve ignitable liquids or gases like petroleum grease, alcohol, paint, propane, or gasoline.

Class C - They involve electrical equipment that starts fires.

Class D - They involve high levels of heat to ignite the metals on fire, this is rare but can happen caused by potassium, magnesium, aluminum, and sodium, as these can ignite when exposed to air or water.

Class K - They involve cooking oils or animal fats and often start when a pan is left unattended for too long on a stove.



Car Crash - This type of call requires both medical and fire response and possible detail. The fire truck that would respond to this call is the Heavy Rescue. Rescue for its water supply and for its standardized tools.

Aircraft Crash - This type of call requires both medical and fire response, possible detail and search team if needed. All units would respond to the call meaning heavy rescue and ladder trucks. Any and all crashes are serious but this one is by far one of the worst.

Other Traffic Crash - This type of call requires both medical and fire response and possible detail depending on the type of traffic crash will make the difference of what and who responds this type of crash consists of any pedestrian, animal, road debris, or other stationary obstruction, such as a tree, pole or building.


Civilian Injury

If any civilian gets hurt you try to do the best you do till medical assistance arrives. If you are in a burning building or any crash at all and a body is recovered you are to do a fire-mans carry of the person and or drag them outside till medical if they are in cardiac arrest you are to complete CPR until Medical arrives. If they are hurt and can not walk you will help them walk and sit till medical arrives. A lot of times medical will already be on scene so that helps when it comes to saving lives.



It is required that you show up for shift completely ready for anything and everything and in proper attire. Around the station, you will wear your FD navy blue polo and navy blue pants if you wish you can wear your full bunker gear around the station but everyone must wear full bunker gear to any and all calls, we get many calls for medical emergencies in which we assist medical, but in some cases, they are fire emergencies with crashes and fires.
