August 7, 2017

This Sunday morning we held an "MPO & Firefighter Fundamentals Class" and an "EMT Fundamentals Class" for our weekly Sunday Training.

This Sunday's "MPO & Firefighter Fundamentals Class" focused on pumping Engine 143 while our Firefighters practiced flowing 1-3/4" hose lines. This type of training is what will help our Firefighters who plan on attending the New York State Firefighter I program succeed in their class and for our Firefighters who have completed Firefighter I to keep up with their skills.

This week's "EMT Fundamentals Class" had our EMTs & EMT Candidates going over medical assessment for the NYS EMT-Basic practical. They reviewed taking blood pressure, including by palpitation, chest pain medical assessments and where equipment goes on our Ambulances. This type of training is what will prepare our EMT Candidates who are preparing themselves for a future EMT-Basic class and for our EMTs who have completed EMT-Basic to keep up with their skills.
