September 2023 TrainingOct 4, 2023
You may have noticed wrecked cars at Station 2, September training had the whole crew performing stabilization and extrication scenarios.
Extrication is a complex and potentially dangerous job that needs to be performed quickly. We rehearsed multiple scenarios to ensure we are not only competent but also efficient.
BCSO is often first on-scene to a water rescue. GVFD had a joint training day with BCSO working on swiftwater rescue skills like: safety, rope-bags, and tethered-rescue.
Flu season is around the corner and another COVID spike is possible. EMS reviewed Respiratory Illnesses-this included PPE, protocols, and patient care.
StateComm gave a fantastic presentation on their systems and protocols. We frequently communicate with StateComm over the radio, but talk is brief and concise. We enjoyed having a relaxed conversation and learning more about StateComm and the many vital tasks they perform.
Finally, we reviewed some new SOGs and equipment assignments.
