Squads – Woodruff, SC

May 4, 2019 - May 5, 2019


Hosted by the Woodruff Fire Department
231 East Hayne Street Woodruff SC
May 4 and 5, 2019 8:30AM – 4:00Pm daily

In many areas of the country fire departments are running “squad” companies.  A squad company may respond in a first due area as an engine company, however, outside of the first due it most often serves as a special services company assigned to rescue or truck related duties. In some regions the squad function is very similar to a truck company.   The squad may also handle various technical rescue functions such as vehicle extrications.

This hands on program will cover a wide array of subjects including squad company functions including search and rescue, ventilation, laddering, forcible entry, rapid intervention and basic engine company functions. Riding positions based upon the dispatched assignment are detailed in the program.

After a brief classroom session, the program will take to the streets with several hands-on drill stations and scenario based exercises.
