*Multi-Dept Drill* Sunday 11/17/19, The Putnam Valley Volunteer Fire Department attended a multiple department drill with the Mohegan FD and Mahopac Falls Vol. Fire Department at the Putnam County Bureau of Emergency Services Fire Training Center. Today’s drill included Live Burns, Engine Company Operations, Truck Company Operations, and FAS-Team Operations. Members from each department combined and operated together in joint crews with assignments including fire attack, back up hose lines, search and rescue, roof operations, ground and aerial ladder operations, and FAST operations. Each Chief Officer from the departments acted as Incident Commander for a total of 8 evolutions. The evolutions were 4 evolutions of a 2nd floor fire and 4 evolutions of a simulated basement fire, where crews entered from the 2nd floor and ascended down to the first floor to extinguish the fire. The last scenario was a simulated Mayday where FAS-Team members from Putnam Valley FD and Mohegan Fire Department worked together to remove the “down” firefighter. This was a great drill that enhanced our inter-agency operations, but also inter-county operations, particularly with radio communications and radio interoperability with working with both county’s fireground channel radio systems.
Thank you to both Departments for this great training opportunity and special thanks to Mohegan FD for the pictures and article.
