2018 OVFC Citizens Fire Academy - Nights 3 and 4
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter RSS

By Lieutenant Jason Morris
October 16, 2018

On Thursday October 4th, the citizens of the academy got an understanding of fire behavior, the proper use of a fire extinguisher, and fire safety training. They were taught how to approach a small fire and how to utilize the appropriate extinguisher to extinguish the fire. Having a basic understanding of fire behavior and basic knowledge of how to approach a small fire, can potentially save your life and prevent significant damage to property.

This past Thursday October 11th, the citizens learned about the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that a firefighter utilizes. They were able to don full turnout gear and how to utilize a Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA). After learning about the turnout gear and SCBA, we put their skills through the 2 minute drill so they could get a feel for a real life scenario.
