Busy Drill Night at KFD
Email Email Print Print RSS RSS Facebook Google+ Twitter

By Ex-Chief Dean W. Pappas
November 19, 2018

Monday night was a busy drill night, as KFD members drilled on basic skills. "Back to basics" focused on two areas: getting a fire hydrant ready to feed water to apparatus, and quickly stretching a pre-connected hoseline so that it does not get tangled up and it can be brought to the doorway of a burning structure for immediate use. Both evolutions were led by KFD line officers with active participation from probationary members through veteran firefighters to ex-chiefs. Several teams rotated through the two stations, stretching lines and flowing water, and setting up the various attachments for the fire hydrant so that it can supply water to the fire engine. Such basic skills are absolutely essential for ensuring that a fire attack is launched rapidly and effectively, with an uninterrupted supply of water the key to success.
