85TH FIRE RESCUE ACADEMY - DRILL & FAMILY NIGHT - JUNE 8, 2018
SDFFCU Hosts dinner for 85th Fire Academy Drill Night.
As is tradition with each class, nighttime drills are held which allow relatives and friends of the future firefighters a chance to observe, up close, exactly what being a firefighter is all about. Observing the demonstrations drove home not only how significant an accomplishment completing the training is, but also explained the tired, dirty, incredibly motivated future firefighters who made their way home each evening after 10-hour training days, only to rise up the next day to face whatever challenges instructors had planned for them.
Prior to the demonstrations, recruits and their guests ate dinner together, and then, as the alarms sounded, each group of recruits put on full PPE and marched in unison to their respective assignments. With veteran SDFRD firefighters observing, and under the watchful eyes of not only their guests but department brass, the firefighter recruits demonstrated their skills at fighting structure fires, car fires, ventilating roofs, conducting ladder operations, preforming search and rescue, repelling from third-story windows, and executing vehicle extrication.
