A day in the life of a Wellsville volunteer
From the Wellsville Fire Department
Wednesday was a busy day for the Wellsville Fire Department, and the Dyke Street Engine Company between alarms, training, and trip to Buffalo to pick the engine up from getting yearly preventative maintenance done. Wellsville Fire Department has acquired two structures in the village to train in the next few weeks, and held a department training covering a bunch of topics. This was great training for our experienced firefighters, and four of our five firefighters that just started their interior firefighters class (IFO) had the opportunity for some hands on training too.
Wellsville Fire Department held a department training at an acquired structure on Elm Street in the Village. Department training officers covered topics of apparatus placement, hose- line advances, initial attack, search and rescue techniques. Wellsville 1, 2, 3, and 9 along with our ladies Auxillary were all on hand for the training. The training allowed opportunities for our current interior firefighters, and some of the students that are in the stare IFO (Interior Firefighters Operations) Class some hands on experience wearing an air-pack. Thank you for all who attended.
After training, firefighters took the opportunity to give the engine a good wash after the long road trip, alarms, and training. A huge thank you to all of the personnel who showed for training, and alarms. Also thank you to Jeff, and Gormans Enterprises for the service on the engine.
During the run to Buffalo, the training, and cleanup crews also responded to three alarms!!
