August Events

National Dog Day

Reserve Hose recruited one of their own to celebrate National Dog Day. Delilah is a six month old dalmatian owned by the family of two of our newest firefighters. This sweet girl is ready and willing to carry on the rich tradition of this breed in the fire service. New York City Fire Departments began utilizing these dogs as early as the 1870’s. They were used as guards to clear the way for the horse drawn equipment. The horses were also afraid of fires and the dalmatian was the perfect companion to keep them at ease on the fireground.

Training - Hose Advancement and Search

One of this month's drills consisted of our engine and rescue crews actively commanding the scene, searching for potential victims and the location of the fire in a building. The firefighters that participated in this training are some of our newest recruits and it was terrific to see all of them learn together and work to assist each other in three separate scenarios. The challenges increased with each evolution and the crews rotated to experience the different aspects of the drill. Interested in joining? Go to reservehose.com to find out more.

Drill - Blind Search

In the world of firefighting, there are three main objectives on any fire scene. Life safety, incident stabilization and property conservation. This drill teaches our crews the skills for a blind primary search using the fire hose as a guide. Any active structure fire will have some level of smoke and our teams need to be comfortable using all their senses besides their vision. With their sight blocked, each member follows the hoseline and uses their hands, feet and tools to “feel” the rooms to find potential victims.
