Controlled Farmhouse Burn for Training Exercise Conducted
Over the last two weeks, members have been working hard to prepare for a training exercise / controlled burn of an acquired structure in our first due. In accordance with NFPA 1403, the standard for live fire and training evolutions, measures must be taken to prepare structures that are burned in this fashion for the safety of our crews and the environment. This past Saturday, members from Church Hill and surrounding companies conducted the training. Crews were able to rotate through several burns before the structure was left to free burn. Thank you to the companies who attended with us, the crew from Millington who covered our first-due and to the property owner, for giving us this invaluable training opportunity.
