Chiefs and Officers Complete Bailout Training
The Moyers Corners Fire Department has devoted much of their weekly training to the topic of firefighter safety. Because of the outstanding research being done by the UL Firefighter Safety Research Institue , we are able to provide our members with the most current data regarding the challenges found in the modern firefighting environment. The MCFD has been incorporating this research into their department drills all with the goal to reduce firefighter injuries and ensure that everyone goes home safe. However, if we do find ourselves in situations that call for an immediate bailout of a structure, we are putting a new escape system in place to help our firefighters. Last night, the Chiefs and Officers of the MCFD trained with this system so that they can assist with instructing our 150+ firefighters. Great job to the team of firefighters that helped to research, develop and train on this system.
While our officers were up at the Clay Tower training, our firefighters attended a lecture by UL FSRI's Robin Zevotek at Station 2. Past MCFD Captain Zevotek was able to share the latest research and findings by the UL FSRI as well as refreshing our firefighters on past research. Thank you to Robin for another awesome lecture!
