This month is Fire Prevention month. Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Company has been to several daycares to do public safety details in Reisterstown. As well, we are going to elementary and middle schools in our first due to do fire drills.
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.
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.
Come and join the Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Company…
