What does a Ladder company do and what are their jobs on a fire scene?

A ladder company usually is assigned and equipped to perform ventilation, forcible entry search and rescue, and overhaul.

On smaller fire departments, firefighters have a less specific job description, but the duties of a ladder company must still be performed. These duties may vary depending on the needs determined by the officer-in-charge (OIC). All firefighters who arrive at a fire scene must be prepared to do any job necessary to save lives or property.
