Class Details

The Ladder Size-Up will answer the questions: Where, What, Why, and How we should be deploying ground ladders on the fire ground. This class looks to revisit the lost art properly moving from the rig to the objective with the correct ground ladder in the most efficient and effective way. This class will get students out of the classroom and out into the real world, where students will size-up actual structures just as they would at a working structure fire.
