The Downingtown Fire Dept. volunteers spent five hours training in live-fire, house fire scenarios at the Chester County Public Safety Training Center in South Coatesville.
Both, Alert and Minquas members practiced basic operations of search and rescue plus ventilation for the truck company. And, the engine company worked on water supply, advancing a hose line through a building and fire extinguishment.
We would like to thank the Glen Moore Fire Co. and the Lionville Fire Co. for standing-by and covering our stations while we conducted the valuable training. In addition, thanks to PA State Representative Harry Lewis for stopping by the training campus to give our volunteers a visit and words of encouragement.
