Ventilation Practices class

Saturday Dec 12 and  Sunday the 13th, Penn Hills fire companies participated in a Ventilation Practices class. Using the old Penn Hebron school, crews performed various types of ventilation techniques and trench cuts which are a way of stopping a fires progression in large commercial buildings.

 

 

 

 

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!!
