Centerville Fire/Rescue holds Relay Pump Training with Abington Fire Department
On Monday, May 8, members from Centerville Fire/Rescue and Abington Fire Department joined together to learn relay pumping. Relay pumping involves moving water over long distances. This could be down a long drive which could be time and safety prohibitive for shuttling tankers to the attack engine. To see photos from our training, please checkout our Facebook page!
Centerville Fire/Rescue Cadets Involved in Joint Training
On Thursday, April 13, the Centerville Fire/Rescue Cadet Program participated in a joint training session with the Wayne County Sheriff's Department Explorers and the Wayne County Emergency Communications Incident Dispatch Team. There were two scenarios that were ran during the exercise. The first involved a police chase that resulted in the vehicle crashing into a natural gas line with multiple patients. The Explorers were then involved in a foot pursuit of the driver of the vehicle with apprehension. The second scenario involved a missing child that had a medical condition that could alter the child's mental status. The child was found in a relatively short amount of time. Good job to all involved in this training. The Cadet Program would like to thank the WCEC Incident Dispatch Team for the invitation to participate!
Also, special thanks to CF/R's Lieutenant Anthony Smith for being our "bad guy!"
