SLVFD Attends Airport Training Drill

By SLVFD News Room
October 12, 2017

Life at the SLVFD includes a massive amount of training to ensure we are prepared to keep the community we love safe. Currently your SLVFD members are engaged in NYS required training, a long term NFPA compliant Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator course and monthly in house fire schools.

On October 12th, 2017 we were hosted by the staff of the Adirondack Regional Airport. During our training drill we received an orientation to the Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting (ARFF) Vehicle. Members each went on a guided vehicle tour of the airports taxiways and runways and learned how to safely navigate and communicate in the event our presence is needed on the airfield. We then brought the ARFF and SLVFD vehicles onto a remote area of the airfield and rehearsed some hook ups and water flow in the event that we are called to do so.

Airport staff are specially trained how to respond to airport fires and emergencies and they are responsible for safe operation and emergency response. Aircraft fuel and components pose special hazards. We are grateful for the strong working relationship between the airport staff and the SLVFD. We would like to tell you that incidents never happen, but they do. We have responded to crashes and fires in the past and this training will help us stay sharp when we are called on to do so again. We have conducted this training about every 1 or 2 years just to stay up to date. Thank you to the crew at the airport for hosting us.

Enjoy a few pictures from the nights training at the airport.
