Live Burn Saturday Morning

By Senior Firefighter Drake Dufault
March 24, 2018

Today members of our department conducted a live training burn of a vacant house on Mocksville Highway. In this training burn members are introduced to live fire situations within a semi controlled environment. This type of training is an invaluable tool for newer members as well as the experienced ones. This structure was donated by the land owner, Mr. Wilbur Reeves to allow room for a new home to be built. Thanks to Mr. Reeves for allowing us the great opportunity to train on a valuable training simulator. 33 of our members were able to participate and learn. Thanks to our Training Staff Captains Jonathan Teague and Aaron Kennedy for all their efforts in setting this training up for the department. Great job by all who were there.

Units: Cool Springs Engine 1, Engine 2, Engine 3, Tanker 1, Squad 1, Bush 1 and Truck 1
 
Mutual Aid: Iredell Rescue and Iredell County Mobile Air 2
