Learning life-saving skills

-A A +A

Throughout the Levy County Department of Public Safety (LCDPS) Firefighter I class, students will complete several drills.

Pictured  is student Roxanne Skjefte being instructed by Fire Instructor Mark James of the Levy County Fire Academy to pull 150 feet of 1 3/4” charged hose 75 feet.

Once she reached 75 feet, she was required to knock down several cones with the water. This is just one of many fire-ground drills that the 15 students will learn and perform during the Fire One class held at the new LCDPS Complex. Students who successfully complete the Firefighter I curriculum standard are able to operate in an Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health (IDLH) environment as Volunteer Firefighters.
