Buchanan Valley FD Volunteers finished up the Pump Operations 2 series this past weekend, with multiple scenarios of pumping, drafting, attach lines, big lines. Several firefighters from neighboring departments also attended this class. Last Night (Wednesday) for the monthly drill night, Adams County Hazmat Coordinator (Kim) brought the Mass Decon Tent to “The Valley” so our firefighter could become familiar with the setup and operations. We are not big on stealing quotes from others, but “Let no man’s ghost return to say his training let him down” !
