The Adams Fire Department recently participated in an inter-agency Rapid Intervention Team training with the Cheshire Fire Department. Cheshire often serves in a mutual-aid capacity as Adams' RIT during structure fire calls. The trainings were held over two weeks with the first being held at the Adams station. Topics were conversions, drags, wall breaches and the Denver drill prop. The second week in Cheshire covered ladder and rope bail outs from a second floor window. Thank you to Chesire FD for the use of their materials and for hosting these benificial and important trainings. Additional photos from the training sessions can be found here.
Over the past few months, while the station has its floor reinforced and an overhead beam notched, the new aerial platform has been under construction at Ferrara Fire Apparatus located just outside of Baton Rouge in Holden, Louisiana. Here is the first picture we have to share of the new apparatus under construction. We will post more when they become available.
