Jacksonville Members Participate in Jarrettsville House Burn Training

May 19th, 2007

A number of Jacksonville's firefighters joined those from other companies in waking up early to go to a house burn training hosted by Jarrettsville on Saturday. A large farm house had been donated by homeowners to save on demolition costs and to allow the local fire departments the chance to perform some training evolutions. Crews were able to perform a variety of tasks including water supply evolutions and drafting as well as interior firefighting. Crews were also able to practice other tasks needed on the fireground such as the RIT group and vent group. While awaiting additional evolutions, a number of Jacksonville’s members responded to a report of a dwelling fire to fill out the crews of Harford County Tanker 1025 and York County Tanker 56-1. The units were cancelled prior to arrival. Members returned to the fireground to get a few more evolutions in before a lunch break. After lunch, the house was allowed to be fully consumed. Jacksonville’s members would like to thank Jarrettsville for the invitation and especially for providing a delicious lunch during the successful day.
