Firefighters were busy this week, here’s a look at what we had going on:
Monday our members started off with training on vehicle extrication including deploying our Paratech struts. 2 hours of good training for new and seasoned members on a couple of different donated vehicles.
Tuesday we joined surrounding fire companies in participating in the Annual Old Home Days Parade. Our crews on Engine 2 and Antique #10 handed candy out to the kids along the parade route.
Wednesday, it was back to training this time with neighboring Clarence Center VFC. The evening was spent going over commercial box store construction, HVAC units and aerial ladders.
Tonight we will have a little fun spent with our neighboring fire department Main Transit, watching their Slo Pokes tournament team compete. Good luck to the Main Transit team, including firefighter Hess and Lieutenant Metzger who are two of our own members currently participating on the team.
Members participated in all of these activities while continuing to juggle their personal lives, spending time with family and answering medical/fire calls in our community.
