Portable Ground-Ladder Rescues

Course overview

Responders arriving at a fire scene have many critical decisions to make, one of which is whether or not to deploy ground ladders to rescue building occupants.

This course discusses the decision-making process that company officers should use to determine the need for ground ladder rescues. Also reviewed are tool selection, ladder placement, staffing and resource needs, fireground tactical considerations, and safety for occupants and responders.
