In our department the Driver and Tiller man jobs our assigned by the chief they tend to take on this role, in the station the senior member of the two handles the things the office shouldn’t have to get involved with. On a job we split the truck into a inside team and a roof team. The officer spots the truck and then takes the firefighter on the back to force the door and search. As any truck team they must be fluent, innovative. They can VES, enter with the engine of go up the back stairs, circumstances will dictate action. The roof team will may make a grab of a victim hanging out a window, or go to the roof. Our staffing never goes below 4. This crew works independent of any officer and reports directly to command once on the fire ground. It is a great way to build leadership on the company. We also do not leave a member on the turn table. When we throw the stick we position with the fire progression in mind. I know this is against NFPA and I am a big supporter of standard. We meet 1710 and have 25 firefighters on every first alarm who are there with in min of each other. By not leaving a member on the table we increase safety and the effectiveness of our company, in 11 years on the busiest truck I have only seen it repositioned twice.
