  • ride outs

    out of you that have done a ride out with your truck or engine co, how many of you get to pull lines and fight fire and go cut 4x4s and all that good stuff. because a few years back when i was a Cadet i only knew of one district that let the cadets do all that.

              ride outs

              We are allowed to catch hydrants, fight brush fires, and hand tools to the firefighters. Also you can go to Medical Calls if you have 1st responder classes.... Other things when you ride with different advisers.

                perez51, a ride out is where you go to your station and pretty much do a shift with the dept, most places you can start at 6 or 7am and you have to be gone by 10,11pm ish,it verys on time. And if your on a exlp. or jr. post most of the time they will not let you go interior because its a IDLH and if you got hurt or worst your dept would be in deep ****. firfightir is the 1st person i have ever heard of being a exlpore or jr that got to go interior.

                  Ride outs are AKA ride alongs. Some post's SOGs/SOPs differ. Not all posts are the same. Like here, we can't do anything that puts us in danger (ie Interior Firefighting, touching patients on medical runs). On a fire scene alls we do is run tools up (I've never been called out so I can't really explain it).


                  To gain respect on the forums, use proper english. Just thoguht I'd let you know because some people on here really lay into people for not using proper grammer and such.

                    Our explorers must first demonstrate that they can handle themselves on a call and know what they are doing. Then they get an accountability tag that they give to the OIC of the truck when they get on. They do everything but go interior or enter a collapse zone. Of course they only get to ride hydrant seat on the truck. or in the back of the rescue.
