SSIGNMENTS
The Recruit will rotate between two positions on the apparatus. The Number Four (
#4
) position, ridesseated behind the Captain. Synonymous with the #4 position Firefighter is the title,
Drop Off 
. Thisname comes from the command given by the Captain to initiate Engine Company activities at anemergency. To
“drop off” 
 
is to start an action that will eventually bring water to the pump, or initiate aseries of events needed to mitigate an emergency situation.Drop Off’s responsibilities vary, depending on the scenario. If the apparatus needs water, it is usually#4 who is responsible for initiating the action that will meet that need. If the apparatus does not needwater right away, #4 will perform other tasks. Whatever the case, it is very important to listen to theentire order given by the Officer. Get in the habit of 
repeating the order out loud
, so the Officer willknow that instructions were heard and understood. If there are any questions regarding theinstructions, ask immediately.The Number Three (#3) position, rides seated behind the Engineer. Another name for this position is“Line Breaker.” When a supply line has been laid from a hydrant to the engine company,
#3
(
LineBreaker
) takes that supply line and breaks the last coupling coming from the hose bed. From thatpoint, the Engineer and Line Breaker work together to complete the supply line operation into thepump. Line Breaker also needs to listen carefully to the complete order. If a supply line is being laidfrom a hydrant, and the order is “Manifold lay – drop off” Line Breaker initially assists #4 at thehydrant. If a supply line is not being laid, the Line Breaker is usually responsible for pulling andplacing into operation, the initial fire attack line.
