1.0 - Heavy Equipment Varieties

(mobile and requires at least one person to operate)

This course will touch on some of the various kinds of equipment that may be used during the course of fighting a forest, brush or grass fire.

  •  Bulldozers, Crawler tractors, Caterpiller Tractors
  •  Excavators, "Hoes", Backhoes, 
  •  Skiders, Skidder Tankers
  • Farm tractor with accessories (i.e. plough, disc, harrow, rake)
  •  Water Tenders, Tankers or Tank Trucks

Note:  It is not usual to include farm tractors and water tank trucks in a heavy equipment category.  However, we do include them in this course because these kinds of equipment are also used to assist in fire containment, control and suppression actions.  The personal (operators) will operate under an equipment supervisor AND are not always "attached" to any specific ground crew.
