Great video with multiple rescues. When was the last time you practiced with a ground ladder. The number one priority on any fire scene is life safety. The first due engine is usually the ones doing the rescue, so even if you are assigned to a engine good ground ladder skills are a must. This video really hammers home this very need. Teamwork, multitasking and scene size up all visible in this video are great example of how smooth a very stressful scene can be managed by the jumpseat riders and the frontseat riders.

Make sure to practice with your ground ladders so we keep the skills needed…the next video like this could be YOURS!!

Stay safe and thanks for a visit to the jumpseat!!
