If you are unable to bring your tree to us, give us a call at 250-339-2432 to arrange a pick up.
Last Wednesday Comox Fire put on a special START course for firefighters from CFB Esquimalt. START is an intensive 1-day course that focuses on hands-on training and skills development for firefighters to save themselves and each other if a situation goes sideways. It is a fun but intense course covering skills such as:
- 2nd storey bail out using webbing
- 2nd storey bail out using a charged hose line
- Head-first window bail out
- Denver Drill
- Wall breaching
- Firefighter through floor rescues
- Carrying firefighters up and down stairs
Never a dull moment at Comox Fire Rescue! Friday Training last week consisted of vehicle fires, VEIS (Vent Enter Isolate Search), and second floor searches taking a hose line up a ladder. Good times had by all!
