    Eric what we can tell you is that FDNY does has an excellent training manuals for their firefighters that are titled Ladders I-V. I’m not sure on how you can obtain them, but I do believe I have seen them on a website called fire training resources under the download section. If you don’t find anything there let us know via email firefighterbasics@gmail.com and we will try to assist you further.

Shortly after founding the site Marques spoke with several trusted friends and ask them to come on board and contribute also. Firefighter Basics is a dedicated group of firefighters who strive everyday to practice what they preach about Training, Safety, and Tradition.  We can be reached at firefighterbasics@gmail.com
