Principles of Truckmanship
Walk into a firehouse, and the workbench probably has a layer of dust on it. That's a problem. This class aims to bring back the culture of craftsmanship in our trade, starting with the tools, techniques, and requisite skills a truckie must possess before, during, and after the fire. Topics will include discussions on our blue collared influences and where mission creep has led our focus; hand tool maintenance, techniques, and tips; what truck work on the fireground actually is; overhauling methodology in legacy construction; and other basic tenets of truckmanship you won’t find in textbooks.
