Twenty Company 35 members participated in a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) demonstration tonight. Members learned about the safety improvements, and explored operational changes/upgrades. Members had an opportunity to try the pack on and experience the difference between 30 minute air cylinders and 45 minute cylinders. Additionally, they tested maneuverability. The new packs are designed to sit lower on the back making overhead operations easier. Additionally, the packs have a new harness system that allows a more natural movement. Company 35 will be upgrading their SCBAs in the coming months. This is the last of several demonstrations allowing us to explore what product will work best for our company.

It may have been cold outside, but we were out training. Approximately 25 firefighters from various companies came out to practice their ladder skills.Chief 35 Mark Taylor said, "Truck operations are crucial. We don't run many structure fires, and that is all the more reason for this training. The overall objective is to ensure these skill sets are second nature."Passers-by on SR 26 may have been curious to know what was going on. There were fire trucks, firefighters, but no smoke. Firefighters practiced setting ladders, setting roof ladders, search and rescue, interior operations, and extrication from the second story.
