Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

We are a volunteer department that runs 3 engines, 1 heavy rescue, and 2 squads from 2 stations.
We are hoping to implement tasks for different seat positions on the apparatus.
If anyone has any suggestions on what their company/department handles this task please chime in.
Our department will have a new slate of officers this January and we are planning to make a few but necessary change(s).
If you want, you may contact me at my e-mail address. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Check out David Polikoff's website "" and go to the "Engine Co." tab. He has a great article on "Duties by Position" and look at the "Truck Co." tab also. I've also found a few articles at "". Look at these sites and see if they have what you are looking for.
Thanks Matt, Larry. This is a good start, I appreciate your willingness to help.
