On-scene of a
structure fire, one firefighter put his foot in the rungs of the ladder truck
and the HEO extended the ladder. the firefighter scream loud enough to get the
HEO to retract the ladder releasing his foot. The firefighter was taken to the
hospital and released. His boot had about 1-2\" of room after the steal
toe was bent.
1 DO NOT HAVE EXTEND
OR RETRACT THE LADDER WITH ANY PERSONNEL WITH OUT PROPER FOOT PLACEMENT!
sure everyone's feet are clear.
3 turn on the voice communication between the
tip of the ladder and the platform so the HEO and Firefighter can talk about
the movements they are going to do.
