Training: Flashover Simulator

Today, a few crews from 223 & Penn Hills No.7 VFC traveled out to the Washington county fire academy for the Dräger Live Fire Roadshow flashover simulator. Crews spent time in the flashover simulator learning to read and understand flashover conditions to try and prevent this from happening to us. Thanks to Dräger US Fire for hosting this great class!!

Firemen Appreciation Day

On Saturday, September 20th, The Rapp Funeral Home in Penn Hills held its Annual Penn Hills and Verona Firemen Appreciation Day. Volunteers and trucks from all the fire departments in Penn Hills and Verona came to the annual event, volunteers even provided a “man downed” situation for the visitors to see. People took bucket rides on Truck 7, while others climbed through apparatus and looked at the tools. We thank Bernadette from the funeral home for holding this event for us over the past year. Thank You!
