V.E.I.S. and Rehab Operations Drill for 03/29/21

By Vista Fire Department
March 30, 2021

This week's Monday drill was "V.E.I.S. and Rehab Operations" for our members.

The "V.E.I.S. and Rehab Operations" drill had our Vista Fire Department personnel going over the Firefighting technique known as V.E.I.S. which is Vent, Enter, Isolate and Search. Vista Firefighters practiced venting a 2nd story window from a 24 foot ladder, followed by entering the room after it was vented, isolating the room to control the environment and then they conducted a rapid search to locate the patient. The V.E.I.S technique is a way for Firefighters to conduct a coordinated rescue in the event of an emergency.

While our Firefighters were participating in several scenarios, our Vista EMS personnel practiced "Rehab Operations" which was designed to ensure Firefighters' physical and/or mental well-being during an emergency scene. Due to the dangers that come with Firefighting, rehab operations plays a crucial role in making sure all of our emergency responders stay safe. The Vista Fire Department is fortunate enough to offer both Fire & EMS services which allows our members to train together in scenarios such as these.

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