Training this evening was SCBA Air Management. Four (4) man crews played floor hockey in full turnout gear and SCBA. Vitals were taken before and after each game to monitor the crew. We played Three (3) games with the scores being 1-0, 3-0, and 4-1. Great exercise and great way to teach firefighters to control their breathing while consuming air.
Monday March 20th the Campbelltown Volunteer Fire Company will hold a Recruitment Nite. Stop in, meet the crew, inspect the equipment, watch our training. If you are interested we will give you an application for membership. We are always looking for Firefighters, EMT's, Fire Police, Ladies Auxiliary members, and social members to help with our fund raisers. If you are interested, phone 717-838-3707 and hit the prompt for the Fire Chief and let us know you are going to attend. We will have something for everyone that attends. Besides, if your neighbors house was on fire wouldn't you want to do more than watch?

Engine 2 laid in with 350 feet of 5 inch. Truck 1 took the front of the structure. crews found a furnace malfunction with CO being 180 PPM. The owner stated the roof was being replaced and there was plastic over the chimney. The snow had built up on the plastic. Crew removed the plastic and vented the structure.

Weather men are calling for a large accumulation of snow and then wind. Remember to keep your furnace vents shoveled open to allow ventilation. The Campbelltown Volunteer Fire Company does not shovel these vents. If the power goes out and you are using a generator please keep the portable generator outside and away from any door. You do not want a carbon monoxide problem during the storm. If your home is by a fire hydrant, please shovel a 3 foot area around the hydrant. This will help us in an emergency. Thank You.
Training this evening was mutual training with Station 1 (Palmyra) and Chief 3 (Lawn). Crews did 3 scenarios with air bags and lifting. First task was to lift a 12 foot ladder with cups of water and try not to spill the water. All 3 crews completed this successfully. Second task was to use the air bags to removed a trapped person from under a vehicle. Third task was alternate lifting with a floor jack and spreaders. A good night of training on equipment you do not use everyday.
