Train like a Firefighter
Work together to protect your community!
Learn what it takes to be a firefighter- teamwork, speed, fearlessness, and love for your community. Learn about some of the tools and equipment on which a firefighter relies. Work as a team with your classmates as you complete a series of obstacles while being timed. Can you perform like a firefighter?
We are offering a scaled down training exercise for older students that can demonstrate some of the physical strains on a firefighter. We can allow for students to dress in firefighter apparel and run a series of obstacle courses. Speed and time are of the essence when HFD is dispatched to a call. We can run some timed drills to see what it is like to dress for a fire while being timed. HFD can provide a show and tell of some of the tools that all firefighters use and when those tools are needed ie. Wildland fire, Structure fire, car extrication etc.
