The video page now has a fire from 2013. The video is brief but shows two vantage points of the incident. The violent reaction of the magnesium vehicle components is seen in both views as the hose stream extinguishes the fire.


12/06/15 Recruit Hose Stream Training

Posted on December 6, 2015

The recruits trained with various hose streams on December 6th, 2015. Here are a couple of shots where a portable monitor was used as part of the master streams component.

Also shown are two of the crosslay hose loads after being packed. One crew understands pride and ownership in their craft. Another is not quite as successful. More work to be done, so training shall continue.
