El Dorado Fire Department Participates in Fire Training at the Eldorado Community School (click this title to see more)

The  El Dorado, Hondo, Glorietta, and Galisteo fire districts were given a rare training opportunity on the weekend of April 19 – 21. They were granted permission by the Eldorado Community School and the contractor  to use the old portions  of the School to practice firefighting skills prior to their being torn down. About 30 members from the four districts practiced tactics of hose advancement, rescue, vertical ventilation, and fire ground safety.  No fires were actually set but the environment of the old buildings was perfect for the creation  of emergency scenarios. The firefighters came away tired but with a wealth of experiences. The following is a picture album of the training. Be sure to click each image t o enlarge it.
