Salvage Covers Drill

  On Monday nights we drill. This particular Monday, a couple of weeks ago, had us learning about the proper use of salvage covers. Firefighters Anderson and Mallory were the instructors for the class.

Here, Firefighter Mallory, shows us how to make a water basin with the salvage cover.

Cub Scout Pack 208 visit station

The station welcomed Cub Scout Pack 208. Firefighter Daniel Anderson showed the scouts Brush 95's hand tools and truck capabilities. Scouts loved the chain saw.



The scouts here are being led by firefighter Bernie Bernsdorf on fire safety and what to do in case for an actual house fire.

Scouts also got to try on turnout gear and see Bernie don full turnouts and S.C.B.A. operation.

Here Daniel and Bernie  showed the scouts some EMS training including blood pressure, heart rate and how to check oxygen saturation using a pulse-ox monitor.
