Confined Space Awareness Training @ CSFC


On Tuesday, March 27th and Wednesday, March 28th, 30 firefighters from Cold Spring, North Highlands, Kent and Putnam Valley Fire departments received training in Confined Space Awareness and Safety. The course which provides identification and awareness information to allow students to make reasonable judgments in confined-space rescue situations was presented at the firehouse by Dan Valentine, a Cold Spring firefighter and fire instructor for Putnam County. The 6 hour course included several topics such as regulations, response planning, hazard types, personal protective equipment, retrieval equipment, and air quality. The students evaluated case histories and were provided opportunities to practice planning skills for confined space rescue response.
