Firefighters from Bargersville Community Fire Department participated in live fire training on July 16th 2011. The training hosted by Nineveh Township Volunteer Fire Department was held in an acquired structure on the eastern border of Ninevehs district. Evolutions included hose deployment fire attack ventilation search and rescue and water supply. The benefits of NFPA 1403 based live fire training are many. The safety of all participants are of the utmost importance. Several safety and back up procedures are in place as crews ignite extinguish and overhaul each training fire. Sate certified instructors serve as inside instructors and safety as well as accompany each crew throughout their evolution. This is the closest we can get to an actual fire BCFD probationary firefighter Jordan Schaffer said. It really helps to build confidence and see first hand how fire develops and spreads in a house. Training fires like this are held throughout Johnson County as regularly as possible. Structures are donated to the departments by owners wanting to demolish them. The departments then obtain state EPA permits Johnson County demolition permits and prepare the structure based on NFPA guidelines. Training together in these controlled settings helps to prepare the agencies for real incidents in which they must work together to bring them to a safe and quick end.
