Training 1/7/2020

January 8th, 2020

January starts rider qualifications at UAFD tonight. Members tried to get tasks crossed off their qualifications list even with the snow by donning SCBA in under 60 seconds, refilling a cylinder for the SCBA, throwing a 24 ft extension ladder and climbing it, pulling the various hand lines on the Engine, setting up and running the rescue tools off the Squad, and starting chain saws and putting them back in service. These are just a few things on the list that members have to complete each year to be qualified to run calls.

The crew from the Engine assisted with fire attack while the Truck crew laddered and vented the 2nd floor windows and assisted with overhaul.

Thanks to Truck 36 from Mount Holly and Engine 3-13 from West Shore Fire Department for transferring and covering our township while we were out.
