GFFR Hosts Fire Suppression 12 Class

Last night GFFR had our annual visit from the Fire Suppression 12 students at GFSS and BCSS. After a year of instruction in Wildland (Forestry) fire fighting, Instructor Walt Osellame brings the class down for an evening to experience the big hoses and big water supply used in structural firefighting.

The classes got to try the 1 1/2" and 2 1/2" attack lines and the deck gun, tried on full protective gear (bunker gear and airpacks) and saw how we shuttle water when hydrants aren't available.

At the end, we sprayed some foam, and once the ice was broken just about everyone ran and splashed through it.

As always, it was a pleasure to have the class, and we look forward to next years group.
