Last friday, SVFD had a large scale training prepaired on the StuddsVille airport.
Goal of the training was to evaluate Heavy Rescue 27, and to evaluate communication, mass casualty and disaster protocols between all 3 battalions.
A written off plane destined for scrapping was loaned and parked on a apron on the far side of the airport, fire and smoke pods were put in and all 7 training dummies SVFD ownes.
First on scene where the 3 airport rigs and the Chief of Battalion 2.
They starded a primary attack on the exterior fire.
Soon followed by BC-1, Engine 13, Rescue 5 and Ladder 13.
Engine 13 layed a supply line, while the crew of Ladder 13 opened the forward fuselage door, as soon as they where cleared by BC-2.
Rescue 5 staged and prepaired for a mass casualty scenario, so additional units were called in.
Engine 14, Squad 17 and Rescue 6 came in as support rigs to cover the rear fuselage door.
Tanker 3 arrived on scene as an extra foam supply.
HAZMAT was also called in to check the aircraft's fuel cells.
SOC and C-1 also came on scene to oversee the training.
The first victim was found in the rear area of the plane, and within 20 minutes all 7 dummies were evacuated out of the plane.
After debriefing, all units returned home.
The training was very well done by the responding companies, only a few sidenotes were made.
Only concern made by the department chief, was that in a real emergency, the rigs couldnt be there as fast so, state was contacted for a grant to buy additional ARFF rigs, such as a pumper tanker and snozzle capability, to start a exterior as a interior knockdown of the fire.
Quoting Michael Parkinson
Love the incident! If you want an Oshkosh T-3000, I can give you the design here. It was a relatively easy build, plus it did not take too many special bricks:)
Thank you Michael,
And I'll think about the offer.
I'm currently building a E-one Titan.
