On March 31 2010, I completed the first half of Firefighter 1 Training at Cumberland County Vo-Tech. I had to complete written and hands on experience to pass the class. I had to complete forceful entry, hoselines, splinklers, ladders, ropes and knots, and savage/overhaul skills. All of these skills have different uses on the fire ground and you need all of them to fight a fire and survive. I got the best score on tying knots and the second best score of the class on putting on the SCBA gear.
