This is our weekly drill night for firefighters. Each week, we focus on a different skillset, and train to make sure all our members are up to speed on how to perform that skill in the field. Everyone (including the public) is welcome to stop in and see what we’re doing. If you’re interested in joining our department, or finding out more about what we do, this is the night to come by!
Each week we have a new instructor. Past drills have included:
- Use of bailout equipment; repelling from the 2nd story
- Demo car fire, using a donated car behind our station
- Animal handling while on a call
- Use of equipment, including our saws, ladders and extrication tools
- Hose advancement through our station, with mock search and rescue
- Radio procedure, and use of ICS (incident command system)
- and many more!
After our drills, we relax, talk and share food. Come on down, and see what we’re all about!
