Hose Line Advancement & Rehab Operations Drill for 07/08/19

By Vista Fire Department
July 9, 2019

This week's Monday Night Drill was "Hose Line Advancement & Rehab Operations" for our members.

The "Hose Line Advancement & Rehab Operations" drill had our Vista Firefighters practicing several different extended stretches in Meadow Pond Elementary School. Vista Firefighters practiced stretching 350 feet of 2-1/2" hose line reduced to 100 feet of 1-3/4" hose line and another extended stretch of 100 feet of 2-1/2" hose line to 200 feet of 1-3/4" hose line. This type of training helped prepare our Firefighters for fires that would require an extended stretch into a large building such as Meadow Pond Elementary School. We would like to thank the Katonah-Lewisboro School District for allowing us to train at Meadow Pond this past Monday night!

While our Firefighters were participating in several different extended stretch 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 or click the "Become a Member" tab at VistaFD.org for more details!
