Today’s Public Safety Alert was sent to remind residents of the extended May 1st order expiration, as the original “Stay Safe, Stay Home” order was set to expire today.

We couldn’t have said it better. Each fire department has a critical role in prehospital emergency care and must continue to provide this essential service in our communities. Here’s how we're doing it. @wvcfd thanks for this awesome video!

Here's week five of recruit camp for Class 53. This week the recruits focused heavily on firefighter survival including learning how to properly call and execute a MAYDAY if they become trapped or lost in a structure. If they become disoriented, they now know how to find their way out of the structure by identifying and following a hose line out to safety. Lastly, they were taught search and rescue and the techniques to perform this task quickly and effectively.
.
Stay tuned as Public Information Officer Ryan Love @ff.love will be embedded with this recruit camp for 16 weeks bringing you weekly video updates. Special thanks to @southmetropio for the inspiration!

Here’s week #3 of Recruit Camp for Class 53. It was an action-packed week as the recruits learned everything they need to know about FIRE...the chemistry, fire behavior, the stages of fire growth, fire dynamics, flow paths, and warning signs. Fire behavior is a language in and of itself and should be thoroughly understood so we can do our jobs safely and effectively. If we understand fire behavior, then we can improve our situational awareness to make correct decisions on the fire ground.
.
Take a look as we also dive into learning how to drive fire apparatus and train on ground ladder management.

Welcome to week #2 of Unified Fire Authority's Academy for recruit class #53. This week was exciting as we turned up the HEAT! The recruits had a thorough lecture from our Training Chief on the importance of building construction, they then witnessed firsthand how different methods of construction hold up under real fire conditions. This was the recruits first time in full PPE while in 500-800 degree temps. They also found a new appreciation for how much hose our engines carry during our “Endless Hose Day”, and they spent hours focusing on hose management. There were many early mornings and long nights as there simply isn’t enough time in the day to practice the basics as they play a vital role in firefighter safety and survival.

Welcome to week #1 of Fire Academy for Unified Fire Authority's Recruit Class #53. This has been an intense and exciting first week for these 33 recruits. They've been pushed both mentally and physically, they were introduced to our department’s culture/history and they were taught firefighting basics. This week was more or less a hands-on introduction for what is to come.

Snowmageddon 2020 is over for now, and while you’re busy digging out after the storm, don’t forget to clear a path around the fire hydrant. A 3ft area around the hydrant is what we’ll need to access it in case of an emergency. Thank you for helping out!
