Last night's weekly Thursday drill consisted of a review of Engine 12 with some of our newer members, as well as some pump operations.

Additionally, we currently have members participating in a Firefighter 1 prep class on Tuesday and Thursday evenings in anticipation of their upcoming exam later this month. 💪
