House Fire Fighting Training July 2022

Over the last two weeks, members of the Upwey Fire Brigade undertook live fire fighting training sessions using the CFA structure fire training prop.

 These training sessions help our operational fire fighters practice and hone a range of skills needed when tackling structure fires that include;
  • defensive strategies
  • direct attack
  • entry procedures
  • use of water patterns
  • hot gas cooling techniques
  • water conservation
  • team work and communication
The brigade has access to a range of different fire fighting training props that are used at regular intervals throughout the year.
Member safety is always paramount during training and operational events. Live fire fighting training sessions are conducted under strict procedures to ensure the safety of the members involved.
