We are going to ask members to participate in one or all of the following offerings in December. This can be a joint effort among the individual fire companies with the company officers taking the lead and setting a night for each company or each member can do it on their own. The videos are self-explanatory. The UL basement fire issues a certificate at the end and is about 90 minutes long. It is VERY educational and challenging yet rewarding
The goal of the December drill is to focus on:
1. Basement Fires
2. Gas Meters
3. Reading Smoke: The Next Generation
You will need to establish an account if you take this course. It is approximately 90 minutes long. It would be great if each company sets a night to do it collectively or members do it on your own. This is a strong foundation to what we are planning 2021.
NOTES: watch the first ~23 minutes. After that it is VERY technical. Please note: all of our meters in Scarsdale are (1) always on; and (2) are passive meters (using only natural air flow to feed the meter). Reminder: a good indicator of a situation requiring an SCBA would be if the homeowners, for instance, are complaining of symptoms and SCARVAC is co-dispatched. This is a strong foundation to what we are planning 2021.
