Yesterday members of Rescue joined several local organizations at one of our local churches for fire prevention. Crews put on a static display and served as a landing zone for the Life Lion Aero medical helicopter.
Tonight crews from company 37, 32, 35, and 38 participated in rural water supply training. Participants set up a complete operation starting at a tanker fill site and progressing the whole way to the scene. During the evolution the different departments where shown a couple of different techniques that could be used to help get water to the fire faster and to help sustain a good fire flow.
Thanks to all the department who were able to participate!
