Duty Crew A Trains on Vehicle Rescue
Thu, Nov 5, 2015

Every Thursday evening Duty Crew A staffs Engine 82-2 and Rescue-82 starting at 1800 hours (6pm) and ending at 0600 hours. The crew eats dinner together, participates in training together, then winds down after training with a trip to Wawa and talks around the kitchen table. Duty Crew A trains on different topics each evening and with the wrapping up of our live burn training, they honed their vehicle extrication skills. Two evolutions were handled simultaneously, the first being a more advanced evolution. In this timed evolution, Assistant Chief Stadler acted as the Incident Commander, while Lieutenant Bayko operated as the crew boss. The members tasked with this evolution had to perform a total roof removal and remove both doors and all posts on the passenger side of the vehicle. Captain Sharp conducted a basic vehicle rescue demo while this was conducted. During the drill members also responded to a residential fire alarm and upon their return began training where they left off. The basic evolution crew learned valuable skills to help them later in fire school and now know what to expect on entrapment calls. The advanced evolution completed their extrication in 23 minutes, within the "golden hour".
