Prince Rupert Firefighters build skills in primary search and rescue

Members of the Prince Rupert Fire/Rescue Department take advantage of many opportunities to continue to expand on their skills and practice key elements of firefighting through the year, with some work in December dedicated towards reduced visibility primary search and rescue drills.

In a post to their Facebook page, the local fire fighters showcase some of their work this month in response to home fires and the work required in a limited vision environment, the repetition key towards developing the skills required in urgent situations.

As part of the December update, the local department also offers up some advice, asking residents to ensure that they have working smoke alarms, practice their own home escape drills, and sleep with doors closed.
