Hose and foam training

Last night E412 and S414 went out in Reisterstown and did some foam and hose training. E412 is one of the few engines in the county that has a Compressed Air Foam System.  We use CAFS as part of our standard operating procedures as it has many advantages over plain water.  It performs a faster knock down and absorbs more heat with less water.  This will limit property damage and increase firefighter safety.

The foam is essentially dish soap and the picnic table was washed off before we left.

Dinner and games at 31

Tonight we were invited down to Owings Mills (31) for dinner and games.  We had E412, E413, S414, SU418 and M415 all go down.  OM had an amazing spread including hamburgers, hotdogs and many other salads and chips.  After supper we played a game of kickball on the front apron.  We want to thank 31 for  the invite and we look forward to invite you up the road soon.
