Ripken 10U State Tournament

The Upper Allen Fire Department had the honor of participating at the 2021 PA NW Ripken 10U State Tournament with UAMBA hosting this event.  The Fire Police provided traffic control and helped to park all the attendees. Truck 23 raised the flag for opening ceremonies and handed out fire prevention goodies. Lots of smiles and families!
Thanks to UAMBA for inviting us!

Tuesday Night Training

Last night’s training focused on pump operation and handlines. Newer drivers operated the pump panel while the experienced interior qualified firefighters worked with the green helmets on pulling and advancing handlines. Also when a crew had down time they went over how to properly set the Tower ladder up.

Training

 

At last week’s training, UAFD did some run-in drills with the Engine and Truck Company. Using a smoke machine to hinder visibility, the Engine crew advanced handlines to locate a fake fire, and the Truck split their crew with one crew performing VES (vent enter search) through the second floor window and the second crew searching the rest of the structure.

Special thanks to Cocciardi and Associates, Inc. for letting us use their training tower.
