This weekend, members of Kennett Fire Company trained with Capitol Fire training in Advanced Truck ops. Here we honed our skills in forcible entry, ventilation and roof operations, VEIS, victim removal, and a variety of other tasks expected of a solid truck company on the fire ground. The class was two very long, physically demanding days of intense education and fun! All members did a fantastic job pushing themselves through obstacles to achieve their goals in each scenario. Huge thanks to the folks at Capitol Fire Training for coming back for their 3rd year in a row to instruct and keep our skills to an exemplary level.
