Fires and Training

While I haven't been able to do any official fire training this summer, Colette managed to get in a small unofficial training session so I could learn a little bit about our engine and how to work the hydrants/hoses. I got to shoot the hose off a few times, open and close the fire hydrant, and learn a tinsy bit about the pressure system in the engine. Earlier that day the other rangers and I were called to a fire alarm at Roosevelt lodge (turned out to be a faulty heater which smoked just a little bit, no harm). I was called to bring the Ambulance and treat the other rangers/firefighters if there was any problem.
