Station 56 hosted a ladder drill with Station 27. Our members got the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the operation of Ladder 27, climbing the aerial. Both companies worked together to practice ground ladder skills and hoisting equipment.
This week, our duty crews reviewed dive operations. They are very manpower and equipment-intensive. Members practiced assisting divers getting dressed, search patterns, utilizing our underwater communications system.
In addition to fire suppression, Somerset Fire & Rescue performs technical and water rescues for Franklin Fire District 1 and neighboring communities. If you’re interested in joining our team, send us a message to find out more about our membership process!
