Concord Fire Department Training

HHH and the Concord Fire Department Work Together on Innovative Training

The Concord Fire Department is doing some training of their staff on the project side (inside of the project fencing) of the South End of the Heritage Heights campus this morning and afternoon. I have just come back from doing some videotaping which will be viewable on Channel 919 and our HHH web blog today.

Given the fact that we are about to go into demolition, this is a unique opportunity for the two organizations to further work cooperatively and in an innovative way. The old cottages allow some real life training of new firefighters.

In order to properly simulate fire situations, the Fire Department is using smoke canisters to simulate smoke and then have their staff get practice in doing roof cuts and forced entries into these old buildings.
