F5 Brindlee Oct 28-31 2019

“Brindlee Mountain is committed to the professional development of our highly skilled technicians and the continuing education of EVT mechanics in the greater North Alabama region. To that end, Brindlee is pleased to announce that the Fire Department Safety Officer Association (FDSOA) will be facilitating a 4 day EVT F5 Aerial Maintenance Fire Apparatus Course at Brindlee Mountain’s North Campus October 28th through October 31st.

The class will cover current NFPA 1911 Standards for the Inspection, Maintenance, Testing, and Retirement of In-Service Aerial Fire Apparatus, manufacturer maintenance practices, and an overview of differing types of design and construction of aerial devices. The course will also include a hands-on portion for the student by delving into an aerial device.

The goal of this class is not only to prepare the student to pass the EVT F5 test, but to help technicians develop a mindset that allows them to perform better in their role of servicing and repairing aerial trucks.
