WVFD Search & Rescue Training

Our fire crew has been conducting regular Structure Fire Search & Rescue Trainings at a house in Savoy that's being used for that purpose prior to being razed. Utilizing new equipment and techniques, they practice locating and rescuing victims or downed firefighters, as well as self-rescue methods such as wall breaching (bottom right photo).

"A real structure allows for far more realistic training scenarios than are usually possible and provides a great learning environment," says Blake Edwards. "We would like to thank the Savoy Fire Department for sharing this great resource." And WE would like to thank the Windsor Volunteer Fire Department for all of their hard work, sacrifice, and devotion.
