SCFD Open House

Yesterday was our county's open house at one of our main stations in honor of this week being Fire Prevention Week. This was the first time that I was not a spectator, but a participant of sorts. I had a blast. And I think I got some great shots of the guys doing their thing!

(demo of the importance of a sprinkler system)

They did a demonstration of a vehicle extrication  as well. It was a full scenario - removing the victim from the vehicle and transporting her to Bayflite waiting to take her to a trauma center. 

It was a lot of fun! I enjoyed being on the "front lines" as it were. I feel like it was an initiation of some sort. I got to enjoy breakfast with the volunteers and then spend the day watching them and documenting their activities. I got to be where civilians were not allowed to go and I got to watch my guy in action. It was a good day.

Next weekend we have a triathlon. Hope it will be better than the first one I went to!
