On Wednesday November 1, members of the Brewster Fire Department attended live fire training at the Barnstable County Fire Academy. This bi-annual training event is a critical component of our efforts to maintain operational efficiency and effectiveness during fire suppression operations.
During the 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 and our surrounding mutual aid communities.
Throughout the program firefighters carried out a number of fire suppression tasks that tested their operational skills and techniques in areas such as fire attack, ventilation, search & rescue, forcible entry, and incident command. This hands-on live fire training is a valuable asset to preparing and maintaining our members ability to operate safely, effectively, and efficiently 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.
