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

The "Hoseline Advancement" drill had our Vista Firefighters reviewing how to stretch an 1-3/4" hoseline off of Engine 141 while conducting several different scenarios. As Vista Fire Department personnel practiced stretching the hoselines, our motor pump operators reviewed how they would supply the fire attack teams with water if they were operating the Engine 141 pump panel. Our Firefighters are now better prepared to properly respond to fire related incidents following the conclusion of this Monday's drill.

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.
