|Firefighters Conduct Training in First Due Acquired Structure|

On March 29th, 2021 at 1900 hours your Mechanicsville Volunteers conducted a drill at an acquired structure we have in the first due. Crews were tasked with a “run-in” which is to operate as the first due engine and special service at a structure fire. During the “run-in” the Engine Company became trapped and had to call a mayday. The Rapid Intervention Team was then required to make entry and rescue the downed firefighter.
We will be conducting live-fire training in this structure in the coming weeks.
