Training this evening was to prepare the car for burn training. Per guidelines we needed to remove the gas tank, interior, brake pads and rotors, tires, and as much of the wiring as possible. We are ready to apply to burn. Hopefully this will be done in the next few weeks. When that was complete we reviewed the Man-In-Machine kit on Rescue 2.
Training this evening was practicing pulling 200 and 300 foot hand lines as well as practicing with different nozzle patterns.
