By Lieutenant of Rescue Raymond Baker Jr.
May 28, 2018

This past Monday, the officers and firefighters of the Golden’s Bridge Fire Department attended the Golden’s Bridge Memorial Day parade and service, followed by a barbecue at the firehouse. Afterwards, members saw an opportunity to do some additional training. While we train regularly -(every Tuesday evening) we always try to practice our skills every chance we get. Under the command of Chief of Department James McManus, some of the skills that were practiced included officer leadership, hose line advancement and operation. Also reviewed were tactics for properly approaching and extinguishing vehicle fires, and apparatus pumping.

Units: GBFD-Car 2141, Car 2143, Engine 140
