Drill Night: Patient Packaging & Ladders

For this week’s (06/14/2023) drill Co1 Firefighters focused on their patient packaging and evacuation skills. In one scenario, a firefighter took on the role of an injured patient who required rescue from a basement area. Firefighters practiced their techniques for safely bringing the patient up and down a narrow stairwell, ensuring they were well-prepared for such situations.

Following the patient packaging and evacuation exercise, some of our younger firefighters also had the opportunity to work on their skills with ground ladders. This vital aspect of firefighting ensures that we can swiftly access different levels of buildings and provide assistance when needed.
