TM 5-4210-233-14&P-1 2-14.  AERIAL LADDER SET-UP - Continued WARNING Ladder   occupant(s)   should   not   rely   on   "leg-lock"   techniques. The   ladder   extension   system   is   powerful   enough   to   cause severe  injury  to  arms  or  legs  that  are  caught  between  rungs  of ladder sections. (7)   Ladder occupants must use approved ladder safety belts. (8)   When  using  the  aerial  ladder  in  sub-freezing  weather,  ice  build-up  on  ladder  sections  can  cause dangerous  loading  conditions.    Avoid  positioning  aerial  ladder  in  water  overspray  to  help  minimize ice build-up.  The ladder load gauge should be checked often to assure ladder load does not enter red line condition.  If ice build-up becomes excessive, the ladder should be put in bedded position and taken to a warm environment to thaw.  It is recommended that when freezing conditions exist a deicer agent be used on the ladder sections. b. Locating  the  Truck.      It  is  important  to  position  the  truck  in  the  best  location  for  safe  aerial  ladder operation.  Rescue and firefighting operations vary greatly.  Following the guidelines below will help to provide safe operation under most situations. WARNING Avoid  overhead  electrical  power  lines.    Severe  injury  or  death may   occur   to   ladder   occupant(s)   who   come   in   contact   with power  lines.    When  electrical  power  lines  cannot  be  avoided, contact the local utility company for assistance. (1)   Position truck far enough away from building to avoid danger in case building collapses. (2)   Block the front wheels in both directions. (3)   The outriggers extend to form a sixteen-foot base.  Allow enough room for full outrigger extension. WARNING Do  not  rotate  ladder  to  side  that  does  not  have  outriggers  fully extended.    Truck  can  tip  causing  injury  or  death  to  personnel and damage to equipment. (4)   If space is limited, position truck so outriggers on the side of ladder operation can be fully extended. (5)   Position truck on a hard surface (paved road) whenever possible.  If it is not possible to park on a hard surface, use a sufficient shoring under outrigger pads. (6)   If parking on a slope, position aerial ladder turntable on downhill side. 2-54
