Recruit Training Class #20 – Wildfires (Photo’s by Firefighter Mike Terrill) - April 18, 2017

On Tuesday night, our Recruit Instructors and some loyal helpers put on an awesome Wildfire class for our new Firefighters.  Normally, the recruit training wildfire class is held as a classroom setting, but in recent years it has been a bigger hit to load up all our recruits on four Brush Breakers and travel the woods.  Breakers 26, 27, 28 and 29 participated in the exercise, as a rolling wildfire class took place in the rear of each breaker.  Our new Firefighters got a chance to not only listen to the instructors in the back of each Breaker describe proper driving techniques, fuel loads, nozzle patterns and operational procedures, but they got a chance to see and experience it first hand.(Photo’s by Firefighter Mike Terrill)
