Students will be introduced to topics such as: safe water shuttle apparatus practices, principles of dump and fill site operations, and tactics for safely and efficiently establishing a dump and fill site. This course is not intended to teach students how to operate fire department pumpers in the rural environment, but rather how to participate as a company tasked with establishing fill and dump sites.
