Day 1 in the classroom for the Heavy Rescue class at the 2013 BGSU State Fire School has come and gone. Part of the crew was at the HOT training group prepping the pits for the rest of the week. This is going to be a quick post with a few pictures and teaching points from todays session. Several links to other training reference are scattered throughout.
We’ll try to get pics and a few teaching points each night this week…
JD made a “rule of thumb” point on knowing the weights of heavy vehicles.
- 1000 lbs. per foot for the trailer
- 20,000 lbs. per axle
Pass it on!
