INTERIOR SEARCH TRAINING

 

The Broadalbin-Kennyetto Fire Company and the Hagaman Volunteer Fire Department conducted Interior Search Training in Hagaman on Monday, November 25th.

 

Members of both companies suited up to work on techniques including search and rescue and use of a thermal imaging unit. The most hazardous duty of firefighters is to rescue occupants from a structure fire. There are always calculated risks to some degree. Certain procedures must be adhered to in order to safely and successfully locate and rescue victims. Once found, it is necessary to remove the victim without additional injuries. Knowledge of fire tendencies and equipment is a necessary part of training.
