Department Training

The cold weather doesn’t stop us!!  This department is proud of the training opportunities that we make available for all of our members. We can train just as hard inside as we do outside.

The pictures below are from the Firefighter Rescue & Entanglement training that was performed last month.  The firefighters are placed in a “blackout condition” (represent house filled with smoke), and have to find and rescue a hurt firefighter.  Props are placed to help show and overcome obstacles that may be in the way when this situation may actually occur.  


2/13/15 - Engine 701 and Car 728 were dispatched to Woodcreek Drive to assist Union FD for a working building fire.  Upon arrival found a two-story, single family dwelling fully involved in the garage with potential to extend into the main residence.  Union command instructed crew of 701 to deploy hose line and make entrance into the main residence to ensure fire did not extend into attic.  Upon entrance into the residence, crew recovered and rescued the family dog.  Encountered and knocked down fire on first floor.  Crew helped with salvage and overhaul.  Once confirmed that there was no other signs of fire in the residence Union Command relieved Engine 701 and Car 728 of there duties.  Back in service

2/6/15 - At 2310 Burlington and Hebron units were dispatched to Utz Lane for a structure fire.  Upon arrival units found a single story residential home with moderate to heavy smoke from the open overhead garage door and from the ridge and attic vents.  Car 725 arrived on scene and took command.  Engine 701 crew prepared for fire attack while 701 officer conducted a 360° size-up.  Found a glow of fire visible in the area of the basement ceiling and first floor.  Crews were on scene for several hours for extensive fire attack, overhaul and investigation.  

WELCOME!!!  

We would like to welcome Greg Schultz, Recruitment and Retention Coordinator,  as the newest member to our Administrative Staff here at the fire department.  Recently, the Burlington Fire Protection District received a SAFER grant from FEMA to improve our volunteer staffing.  Staffing for Adequate Fire & Emergency Response (SAFER) is part of a suite of grants available to fire departments to enhance emergency preparedness/response through equipment and staffing.  He has served on many levels in the volunteer service from firefighter to Chief of a department for 10 years.  

His recent retirement from the the Fort Thomas Fire Department, as a career fire captain, will provide for a mix of career and volunteer insight that will prove essential to this recruiting position.
