The Chili Fire Explorers took advantage of a nice Saturday morning and learned about Quint 4310.  Topics covered how to setup the vehicle in order to operate the aerial ladder, the various safety features of the truck, and the hazards involved with operating an aerial ladder.  The Explorers were not allowed to climb the aerial but were able to take a ride in the bucket while wearing ladder belts that were connected to the bucket.  A few of our recruit firefighters demonstrated for the Explorers how to climb the aerial ladder while in full PPE and SCBA at the end of the drill.  Click on the picture below for more from today's training or go to our Photo Gallery page.
