Last night the Garden City Fire Company held a SCBA qualification drill for our junior firefighters. Throughout 2015 and the beginning of 2016 the junior firefighters have been working with SCBA during basic training drills. Monday night it was time for the junior firefighters to demonstrate their knowledge and skills using SCBA. The junior firefighters had to demonstrate putting on the SCBA without any errors within a specific time period. Once that was completed they had a one on one with a company officer and their knowledge and proficiency with the SCBA were evaluated.
9 of our junior firefighters completed the SCBA qualification process and will move on the next step in our training process; car fire awareness and safety training. Once this training is completed the Junior Firefighters will achieve our goal of being qualified as an exterior firefighter and will be able to fight exterior fires including car fires.
Congratulations to our junior firefighters for a job well done!!
