Car Fire Training
Thu. May 30th 2019

On Thursday May 30, 2019 the Thornwood Fire Department conducted motor vehicle fire training. One of our members, Firefighter O'Connor, donated an old unused vehicle to be used in the training. Firefighter O'Connor is currently deployed in the Marine Corps and graciously donated an old vehicle that no longer ran. We conduct several trainings using vehicles that are to be "scrapped", but they are not easy to come by. As firefighters, we cautiously make sure the vehicle is safe to use in live fire training simulations. This type of training is essential to firefighters to continuously provide excellent service to the residents and neighbors we serve to protect. Despite the heavy rain, approximately 20 firefighters faced the elements and trained for a motor vehicle fire response. During winter months, it is quite difficult to train using hose lines and train newer members in how to handle and ultimately operate a hand line (due to freezing and cold weather). You can expect to see the Thornwood Fire Department trucks and firefighters training throughout the fire district over the summer operating hose lines, extricating vehicles and operating the tower ladder. Don't be afraid to say hello and ask the firefighters about our activities and if interested, the process to join. We serve to protect you, your neighbors and our community. Thank you to Firefighter O'Connor and stay safe. Semper Fi brother. 

 

If you or someone you know is looking to "scrap" a vehicle, try contacting the local fire department to see if they would consider using it for training. You could be entitled to a tax refund for your donation.
