Duty Night & Drills

Another productive Thursday night at UAFD!

Our dedicated members came together for a duty night, chipping in $2 each to enjoy a delicious dinner our talented UAFD support force prepared. After satisfying their taste buds, they geared up for some intense training.

Behind the station, our team engaged in Truck company run drills on our training stair tower. Our driver focused on apparatus positioning, striving for the perfect “scrub” angle with the aerial to maximize building coverage.

Meanwhile, the crew practiced throwing ladders swiftly and accurately, ensuring seamless access to elevated areas. Venting windows was another crucial task they tackled, mastering the techniques to improve ventilation during firefighting operations.

Not stopping there, our brave firefighters also trained in VentEnterSearch (VES). They executed this challenging maneuver from ladders and the bucket, ensuring they are prepared for any scenario where quick search and rescue is necessary.

We’re proud of our dedicated team for their commitment to continuous improvement and staying prepared for any emergency. Together, we strive for excellence in every aspect of firefighting.
