T3 Training: Live Burn Training
By East Brandywine Fire Company
April 8, 2017

On Saturday April 8th, seventeen East Brandywine Fire Company volunteers participated in live burn training. This is an essential element of our training program since it most closely replicates the conditions faced during a house fire.

Throughout the day volunteers trained on some of the following:

Size-up and 360 degree survey

Hydrant Operations and laying a supply line

Deploying an attack line and back-up line

Hoseline management

Fire suppression tactics and ventilation techniques

Ground ladder placement


The day proved incredibly successful according to the participants and everyone left with a little more knowledge.

The Line Officers would like to thank the West Whiteland Fire Company for covering our local during this training session.
