On Saturday April 8th, seventeen East Brandywine Fire Company volunteers participated in live burn training. This is an essential element of our training program since it most closely replicates the conditions faced during a house fire.
Throughout the day volunteers trained on some of the following:
Size-up and 360 degree survey
Hydrant Operations and laying a supply line
Deploying an attack line and back-up line
Fire suppression tactics and ventilation techniques
Ground ladder placement
The day proved incredibly successful according to the participants and everyone left with a little more knowledge.
The Line Officers would like to thank the West Whiteland Fire Company for covering our local during this training session.
