Brewster Firefighters Attend Live Burn Training

On Tuesday May 17, members of the Brewster Fire Department attended live fire training at the Barnstable County Fire Academy. During this rapid paced and dynamic training session Fire Academy instructors placed the firefighters in a variety of challenging live burn scenarios designed to simulate typical structure fire responses common to the Brewster Fire Department.

Throughout the evening department members carried out a number of fireground scenarios that tested their operational skills and techniques in areas such as fire attack, ventilation, search & rescue, forcible entry, incident command, and use of the thermal imaging camera.  This hands-on live fire training is a valuable asset to developing and maintaining a firefighter’s ability to operate safely and effectively at structure fire related incidents. The Brewster Fire Department would like to thank the staff at the Barnstable County Fire Academy for their dedicated and expert guidance during this outstanding training event.
