Not Your Average Driver Training

By: Lieutenant Tom Cleveland, Jr.
       Fire Station 34 A-Shift

Yesterday, personnel from Fire Station 34 (Milestone) A-Shift took advantage of the beautiful weather to drill with a future Engine driver. So off we went to Seneca Creek at Davis Mill Road and Huntmaster Road.

The scenario involved drafting from an alternate water source in non-hydrant area. This is important as there are areas of the county that do not have a fire hydrant close by. We must train all new drivers to be ready for any scenario they may encounter on a fire scene.
