Members Participate in House Burn Training in Hereford

June 26th, 2004

Early morning on Saturday, a group of Jacksonville's volunteers met volunteers from other companies at the Hereford Volunteer Fire Company. A house had been donated to Station 44 to be used for training firefighters. Starting at 6:30am, crews worked filling the house with hay and pallets of wood. Burn technicians and personnel from the Baltimore County Fire and Rescue Academy arranged the house in the best way possible to rotate the most crews in. They also inspected the air bottles and turnout gear to be used by the interior firefighters. While some crews were up at the house, others worked on laying hose and setting up the water supply from nearby streams using tanker support units. Overall, it was a very good day with all crews getting a chance to go in and make an attack, with some even able to go a second time. Companies present were: 30, 38, 44, 45, 47, 49, 53, as well as the Rehab trucks.
