We train, at minimum, every Thursday night from 7-9. Here is a sampling of our training:
SCBA training - We had to crawl around through the dark truck bays, following a charged hoseline, in an attempt to rescue a victim (Rescue Randy mannequin). We went in as 2-3 man teams.
Hose Testing is a big part of our training. Every year, we have to test thousands of feet of hose, to be sure they can withstand the pressures required for fighting fires.
