Scene safety basics
Know the basics and have the instinct to remember and use the basics of firefighting! These can be applied to a few different topics.
With PPE, there is a reason we are given turnout gear — to protect us. But it cannot protect us if we do not wear it and wear it properly.

In addition, know your ladders. Know which way to carry them to the scene and raise them properly and safely.
