Fire Service Training. Ladder Practices. (Revised).
North Carolina State Dept. of Community Colleges, Raleigh.
One of a set of fourteen instructional outlines for use in a course to train novice firemen, this guide covers the topic of ladders. Designed for the combination lecture and practical application method of teaching, this part of the course explains and demonstrates various types of ladder construction, handling techniques, and maintenance. Its objective is met when the fireman achieves proficiency in climbing ladders and making raises both singly and as part of a team. This outline is to be used in conjunction with the International Fire Service Training Association's manual, "Ladder Practices" (see note). Also included is a handout on ladder inspection. (An outline of the whole course covering all fourteen topics briefly is provided in the first volume of the set--CE 016 662.) (ELG)
