Practice Makes Perfect!

By: Master Firefighter Joe Hayunga

In the photo below, Captain Tom Potter is leading a company drill at Fire Station 13. The topic of the drill is slope evacuation, a rescue technique used to access a victim at the bottom of a steep slope. Each crew member got to practice tying anchors, building a hauling system, building a belay system and attending to the victim during the haul up the slope.

Every single day Montgomery County Firefighters, when not responding to calls for help, spend a part of their work day training hard so we are ready to assist those who need our help no matter what the situation.
