On Saturday September 16TH, crews from Co#11 and the Juniors Vol Fire Co#2, participated in a joint training drill at the old Walmart on Monocacy Blvd. Co#2 firefighters were given familiarization training on Quint 11, so they would be comfortable operating with it during an actual fire event. Topics covered included equipment locations, apparatus limitations, and aerial operations. Co#11 crews were then provided the same training on Engine 23. Our companies share a large portion of our first due response areas, and the need for members of both companies to be familiar with our equipment is essential for safe and effective fire ground operations. Thank you to Frederick County DFRS Captain Frank Malta, for helping to coordinate this valuable training event.
