Ventilation Drill

Thursday, June 25, 2015  Tonight we tackled our new roof prop. The prop was built in house to simulate cutting ventilation holes on a roof. Members utilized both echo chainsaws and the K12 rotary saws. This is a skill that is not practiced often so having the prop in house will improve our skills. Excellent job men!

   


 

Happy Father's Day!!

Sunday, June 21, 2015  Our family at station 37 is not just a bunch of men and women that spend hours upon hours drilling, responding, training and cleaning.....its comprised of sons, daughters, wives, mothers and especially fathers. These individuals spend time away from their families to serve the community to make it safe for those that reside here. We want to take this opportunity to thank and recognize the men who go above the extra step and still manage to hold the greatest title of all- Dad. Thanks to all those that not only raise your kids at home but also raise those that have join the ranks after you and are the "firehouse dads." Happy Father's Day!!
