Live Burn Dempster Center 8-19-14

Friday, August 22, 2014 On Tuesday evening August 19th the fire company conducted a live burn at the Mercer County Dempster Center. The focus of the class was long hose stretches without a preconnect for garden style apartments that are set back and not easy to access. There are several apartment buildings in Plainsboro in which this training was beneficial to learn from. Members used a 3″ line connected to a high rise pack with a gated Y to get the maximum reach to the fire floor, as well as use a backup line for protection and search.
