Sedro-Woolley Firefighters Receive Training on Old House

Sedro-Woolley, WA – The Sedro-Woolley Fire Department  participated in some excellent training evolutions at an old  home that is going to be torn down  in the 1200 block of Batey Street off of West Nelson Street in  Sedro-Woolley on August 7th, 2017.

Firefighters were able to participate in rescue techniques, using a life size “rescue randy” dummy as well as mock fire scenarios using a special fog machine and special lighting.

Additional training was done on the proper use of ladders and how to properly perform roof ventilations. These training scenarios provide valuable training for firefighters that they can use on active fire grounds.

The three older  homes in the 1200 block of Batey Street were purchased by Habitat for Humanity last year.   Habitat has plans to demolish  them and rebuild new homes in their place.

The former home owner watched as the fire department trained on the home him and his family  grew up in.

The fire district will spend several days over the next month training inside the homes before they are demolished.
