Company 2 MVA Drill – CFD Training Facility - May 5, 2024

Fire crews from Company 2 recently sharpened their MVA entrapment skills.  Crews worked scenarios using Jaws of Life tools to free simulated patients trapped in an MVA.  The second portion of the drill was a tour of two electric vehicles and training on recently purchased EV immobilizer tools.  Once one of these new EV immobilizers is deployed, it prevents any electric vehicle from suddenly starting and moving forward during a rescue scenario.  These new EV immobilizer tools are now in service on each Engine.  The final portion of the drill was to learn and practice deploying our recently purchased ballistic PPE.   The new ballistic PPE includes bulletproof vests, helmets, and eye protectors.  The new equipment is now deployed on each Engine Company.  The drill was well attended by our firefighters and coordinated by our Officers. Well done! (Photo’s by Firefighter, Steve Falconer)
