BFD Training 5/23/11
On 5/23, Belton firefighters met for our bi-monthly training meeting. Members took to the woods for some good rope operations training. While in the wilderness at JC Ballpark firefighters took advantage of a large drop off to the creek for some basic rappelling. Both regular members and explorers took part and did a great job learning some new techniques. Later all members performed a low angle rescue down a large embankment further in the woods. Skills practiced were sked stretcher, patient packaging, bar rack lowering, tandem prussik belay, and lower to haul conversion. Pictures will be added soon.
