Recruit Training Class #8 – Pumps Practical - March 9, 2017

Our Recruit Trainers really went above and beyond in teaching our newest Firefighters proper fire pump operations.  Firefighters got a chance to operate our new front line Engines, two Breakers and a Tanker Pump in realistic pump operation scenarios.  Learning how to draft water out of our portable pools is a must when you become a firefighter in Carver.  Our new Training Facility with onsite pressurized hydrants and great lighting helped take everything to the next level.  Great job TEAM!...
