Kevin explaining the thinking and actions behind a driver/operator’s duties on a high rise operation while Jack performs them. The pump operator always has one of the most important roles on a fire scene due to their crew being dependent upon them so that they can go in and extinguish the fire. Not to mention, they have the responsibility of getting their crew to the scene safely.

In this video, Kevin and the guys demonstrate the expectations if we have an emergency at a location where we need to utilize a standpipe. Any questions, feel free to drop them below and make sure you’re following us on Instagram @glensidefirecompany and like us on Facebook!
