Nature: Training Exercises @ Draine Residence
Address: Indian Mission Road @ Beaver Dam Road
On Saturday, October 9th, the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company conducted its final training exercise at the residential structure located at the intersection of Indian Mission Road and Beaver Dam Road. Initially, the residential structure succumbs to an interior fire while the residence was occupied.
Over the months since the unfortunate residential structure fire, this location has been utilized by various fire companies for residential firefighting evolutions and various training exercises that included: rapid intervention tactics, ladder evolutions, stages of fire presentatation, residential firefighting, residential search & rescue techniques, and others.
This final evolution provided valuable training for new volunteer recruits with tactics such as hose handling, stages of fire, reading smoke and indicators, heat mitigation and various other strategies.
The Indian River Volunteer Fire Company would like to acknowledge the Draine Family for their cooperation and understanding assistance during these events.
