FIRE DRILL… Westfield Fire Department firefighters and personnel from the Westfield Volunteer Rescue Squad train in proper patient care for a simulated injury to a firefighter during a recent exercise conducted at the Union County Fire Academy in Linden.
WESTFIELD — Continuing the ongoing training between the Westfield Fire Department and the Westfield Volunteer Rescue Squad, both agencies recently trained together at the Union County Fire Academy, located in Linden.
The drill was designed to give the rescue squad’s Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) an opportunity to enhance their skills in caring for potential injuries involving both residents and firefighters at a structure fire scene.
The Fire Academy provided a controlled atmosphere where the stress of real smoke and flames could be experienced by both firefighters and EMTs.
Each time an “injured” firefighter was extricated from the training
building, rescue squad personnel were challenged to identify and correct any and all lifethreatening injuries. One drill scenario simulated a firefighter having been injured due to a floor collapse while extinguishing a fire.
In addition to the injury scenarios, EMTs received training in firefighter rehabilitation at the simulated fire scene. Rehabilitation is essential in identifying firefighters who may be at risk for dehydration or exhaustion during the stress of fighting a fire.
The Westfield Fire Department and the Westfield Volunteer Rescue Squad plan on conducting more training exercises of this nature in the future.
