e. Positioning Ladder. Before starting to position ladder, the
ladder operator should make a thorough inspection of the
area around the ladder. The outriggers must be securely
positioned and the surrounding area should be clear of
obstructions.
WARNING
Ladder must not be occupied during ladder
positioning.  Crushing injury can occur during
ladder extension or retraction. Sudden ladder
movement may cause personnel to fall.  An
operator must be at the tumtable controls at all
times when the aerial ladder is in use.
NOTE
Refer to para 2-15 for emergency aerial operating
procedures.
(1) Open aerial control panel cover.
(2) Move SYSTEM LOCK lever to RUN position.
(3) Using the LOWER/RAISE aerial control lever, raise the
ladder enough to clear ladder bed locks.
CAUTION
The ladder controls should be operated slowly and smoothly.
Sudden ladder movement is magnified at the ladder tip. This
may damage the equipment.
The ladder control operator should always keep visual contact
with ladder. If operator's attention is diverted, ladder movement
should be stopped and SYSTEM LOCK lever moved to LOCK
position.
WARNING
Do not allow personnel to climp or descend ladder unless RUNG
ALIGNMENT light is on. Injury or death may result.
(4) Operate ladder controls until ladder is in position.
All three ladder controls can be operated
simultaneously.
(5) When aerial ladder is in position for rescue/firefighting operation, move SYSTEM LOCK lever to
LOCK position.
