Confined Space Rescue Drill

Fire District No. companies attended the second of four district training events.  Each district company hosts one district drill per year.  This most recent training event was the responsibility of Somerset Fire & Rescue, the topic Confined Space Rescue.  Confined Space Rescue is a very specialized skill and requires the help of all District stations to accomplish.  This year we had special guests in attendance.  Our friends from Community Fire Company (Sta. 25) were a welcome addition to the training.  The drill scenario presented the challenge of performing two separate confined space entries simultaneously. In addition, each entry also consisted of a vertical and horizontal entry component.  The crews performed both rescues with great expedience while maintaining the highest level of rescuer and victim safety.
