Csmeadphotography | August 15, 2017 | SJFD recruit training

SJFD recruits had a full training at the BFO which had recruits climbing the tower with hose lines to extinguish fires, using chainsaws on the simulated rooftop, climbing through shipping containers to rescue a downed fire fighter and using rope to pull hose to a second floor fire. SJFD had fire fighters at all the stations to help recruits through the challenges and help them learn the best ways to complete them. Chiefs and captains oversaw all the branches and held an active IC for the day. Only one fire fighter had a minor injury and all crews walked away learning lots. These recruits graduate later this month.
