Large Area Search & Rescue and EMS In-Service Drills for 07/12/21

By Vista Fire Department

This week's Monday Night Drill was a "Large Area Search & Rescue" drill for our Firefighters and an "EMS In-Service" drill for our EMTs.

The "Large Area Search & Rescue" drill had our Vista Firefighters reviewing search & rescue techniques that included using a 200 foot search rope in a commercial building setting. Vista Firefighters practiced tethering off of the main rope by utilizing a 25 foot personal rope accompanied by a 6 foot hook. This type of training helped our Firefighters better prepare themselves for the challenges they may face in a commercial fire atmosphere when they may need to exit a building or conduct various tasks such as a search & rescue. We would like to thank the Katonah-Lewisboro School District for allowing us to train at Meadow Pond this past Monday night.

The "EMS In-Service" drill had our Vista EMS personnel conducting practical skills evaluations and reviewing the medications we carry on our Ambulances for various different types of responses. Vista EMS personnel reviewed medications such as epinephrine, aspirin, albuterol and narcan. This type of drill is part of the annual in-service training that our EMS personnel have to go through every year.
