This week's Monday Night Drill was a "Nozzle Techniques and Hoseline Advancement" drill for our Firefighters and a "Heat Emergencies" drill for our EMTs.

The "Nozzle Techniques and Hoseline Advancement" drill had our Vista Firefighters reviewing different nozzle techniques while advancing an 1-3/4" hoseline. While our Vista Firefighters practiced various nozzle techniques, our motor pump operators also practiced drafting with Engine 141. Drafting is the process of raising water from a static source like a dry hydrant and supplying a fire engine with water to fight a fire.

The "Heat Emergencies" drill had our Vista EMS personnel reviewing how to treat patients dealing with issues stemming from high outside temperatures. Some of the heat related emergency topics our EMTs reviewed included heat exhaustion, heat stroke and heat cramps. Vista EMS personnel went over several call scenarios on treating these patients and the proper way to hydrate them when suffering from these related issues.
