Saturday doesn’t mean a day off for the crews of UCFD as 10 members attended Live Burn Training at West Chester Burn Buildings. Even though there was limited manpower crews worked on multiple evolutions with fires on multiple floors and taking victims out the tower bucket as well as numerous other difficult scenarios. Everyone in attendance pushed themselves to the limit physically which will only help to serve the residents of Upper Chichester and surrounding communities that much better.
Four of our younger members who will be the next generation of firefighters to serve Upper Chichester and surrounding communities also were attending Structural Firefighting at Delaware State Fire School today and will complete there training next weekend.
