BLS Fast Cars

LSFD recently placed in-service four new BLS fast cars to improve response during Peak Time operations. These vehicles are used to respond in advance of the Paramedic ambulance to insure our standard of cover for EMS emergencies. These vehicles are also staffed by some of our most senior paramedics that allows for EMS supervision of critical care patients .

Crews train with thermal imaging cameras in the new tower.

LSFD crews, along with a few mutual aid companies, spent the past few days partaking in training at the newly finished training tower. The topic of training was thermal imaging cameras and fire dynamics. Crews entered the building and observed several different fire behavior patterns, as they appear through the lens of the thermal imaging cameras they carry.

 

 

Mass Casualty Training

Unit 1 spent some time today training with our Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) trailer.  A Mass Casualty Incident has the potential to overwhelm first responders in a community or region due to the large size, which is why it is important to remain prepared for all types of emergencies.
