Tonight we conducted a disentanglement drill, or what we like to call a “spaghetti drill”.
In teams of two, firefighters had to follow the hose out of a simulated structure, under and through objects that may have fallen across their path. Nomex hoods were used to cover their eyes to recreate the no-visibility conditions frequently found inside a smoke filled building. This wasn’t a search and rescue drill. It required communication between partners and good teamwork to follow the twists and turns of the hose.
Chief reviewing what we’ve learned.
We’re always looking for more volunteers, interested in joining us? We train the first, second, and third Thursday night of each month at 6:30pm. Come by and see us!
