BFD Training - January 2015
Training during the month of January consisted of honing our basic firefighting fundamentals. The fire service, like any other organization, ties its success to being fundamentally sound before graduating to advanced skills. The focus for these drills were exhibiting solid communication skills while replicating functions that take place on every fireground. Firefighters donned PPE, stretched hose, raised ladders, performed firefighter rescues, tied knots, and worked on several different hose loads during a team event. We will build upon these core skills to ensure we are thoroughly prepared for the most important call.....the next one!
