Is that house burning?
No, its just us getting some training in at a location other than the firehouse. As mentioned in the last article, we train every Monday on different aspects of our job to ensure that we can be as prepared as we can for every scenario.
Sometimes though, we’re lucky enough to be able to practice a full situation that private citizens allow us to practice on.
During this mock scenario for training, the entire company was able to apply their knowledge and experience and also gain new experience in a safe, controlled environment.
Some of the situations covered in the training were:
- Search and Rescue
- Rapid Intervention
All of these situations that were practiced are things that we may have to encounter on an actual incident scene. As the saying goes:
