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.
