CSFC Wild Fire Suppresion Training

Tuesday night June 14th, firefighters from CSFC traveled to Little Stony Point with 13-3-1 (the company brush truck) and 13-3-2 (Polaris Ranger) for some hands on wild fire suppression training.  In the course of the drill firefighters were familiarized with the tools and equipment on 13-3-1, including utilizing chainsaws, rakes, and Pulaski tools to demonstrate wildfire suppression techniques and dig fire lines.  The brush pump on 13-3-1 was also utilized in order to familiarize drivers and firefighters with it’s operation and capabilities.

The Cold Spring Fire Company would like to remind residents that wild fire season runs from approximately March until November.  We live in a predominantly forested area, and the threat from lightning, discarded cigarettes, unattended camp fires, etc… is real.  Please be cautious and vigilant throughout the dry summer months and report any suspicious smoke to 911.
