Live-Burn Training 10/3/11

Our training this last Monday took place at Station 92, where we took part of in a live burn exercise with crews from Rescue 92 and Ladder 91. Though the pictures are not the best quality (they are from my phone), you can see some of what we did.
 In this picture, Ladder 91 has put their aerial ladder on top of the roof of the burn tower, and after climbing to the top, we participated in ventilation training.

Here, 3-man crews were taking turns making entry and fighting fire on both the 1st and 2nd floors.
