Extrication training. Good refresher for members and a couple of new members got some new experience.
Great training tonight. Went over sprinkler systems, alarm systems, after Chief gave overview of different types we took a short quiz. Then we set off one of the sprinklers in our station and learned how to shut off the head with different types of tools and then replaced the head. Got to see how quickly the audible alarm went off after sprinkler was activated and how long it took to get called into dispatch. Great refresher since there are not always alarms or sprinklers at our calls.
Ladders by Jess — a portion of training, January 6th, was ladders. These can be a very dangerous piece of equipment so review of use and safe handling is very important.
It takes a village....
Many thanks to all the people who helped in the days and weeks prior to make our Live Practice Burn a reality. Thank you to Town of Minocqua, Mark Pertile and the town crew, Minocqua Police Department, Lakeland Sanitary District and the DNR. A special thanks to Mike Carlin for guiding the firefighters through the actual burn, to Elana Seidler for helping keep our firefighters safe. And of course thanks to our neighbor departments for joining us in this valuable tool for our firefighters, we couldn't do it without knowing you have our backs.
