Marathon Day, Two Training topics at 2 locations.
Aaron Miranda from Poway Fire, and Antonio from Cruz Roja, Joel and Scott from Gig harbor Fire and FFCB worked with over 60 bomberos on Vehicle Extrication. We brought two Hurst Tools with us out of the cache of tools donated by Hurst Inc back in 2009. With cutters and spreaders and new power plants we cut on three cars each session. Located in a remote area of Tecate and utilizing buses for transport between training sites, we had firefighters from Tecate and Tijuana working together. One session in the morning and the second in the afternoon, our day began at 0700 and ended with the debrief at 1830 . Long day.
Our second class was a wet hose drill using an abandoned school that Tecate acquired recently for practice. Marcelo DeCasas from Bomberos de San Diego along with Omar Rodrigues and Oscar Saucedo. put together an awsome drill. With an engine from Tijuana pumping the evolutions, those guys pulled hose all day A obstical course was constructed by the Tecate guys under the supervision of Marcelo and its impressive. Pictures will be on the Facebook page and this site soon.
Tomorrow we have Search and Rescue in conjunction with Officer development and ICS. For now
