Hydrant Service and Splinting Drills for 11/09/20

By Vista Fire Department
November 10, 2020

This week's Monday Night Drill was a "Hydrant Service" drill for our Firefighters and a "Splinting" drill for our EMTs.

The "Hydrant Service" drill had our Vista Firefighters servicing the dry hydrants as a preventative maintenance measure for the Vista Fire District. Conducting a hydrant service regularly allows motor pump operators to get water faster than they would when a hydrant may be obstructed with silt due to the seasons. While the Vista Firefighters serviced and checked all the dry hydrants in the district, it also gave those who have been driver training the opportunity to practice their pump panel skills.

The "Splinting" drill had our Vista EMS personnel performing in several splinting scenarios, reviewing the proper ways to perform a traction splint and how to properly "sling and swathe" a patient with a shoulder injury. EMS personnel will use splinting techniques to immobilize the extremities of their patients when an injury has occurred and to also manage the pain they may be feeling.

If you are interested in being part of our team at the Vista FD, visit us any Monday night from 6:30pm - 9:30pm or click the "Become a Member" tab at for more details!
