BFD Training 3/24

On Monday, March 24, Belton firefighters met for regular training and continued learning how to handle lost/missing person incidents.  Once again, Ryan Herring from Anderson Tech Rescue came by and discussed what should take place early during these types of calls.  Firefighters also reviewed a mapping program to assist in performing different types of searches.  SAR packs and ICS was reviewed in great detail.  BFD members also reviewed numerous incident photos of structure fires with the question being posed as "go or no go" situations.  Follow the link to FDQ/Facebook and you will find all of the photos reviewed and the responses that went along with them.
