Hoseline Maze
Monday, June 30, 2014
-
The LCFC hosted a fun training night for both the LCFC crew and Ridge Fire Company's crew. Both stations participated in a hose line maze drill. The drill was held at West Vincent Elementary School's playground. Crews were put together and told to go through the play ground making all sorts of turns and having to climb over and under multiple parts of the play set. Once they made it through the maze they were to use the hose line to knock over traffic cones that were to symbolize fire. This drill was designed to make firefighters think about having enough hose when going into a building and hose placement throughout the building. It also was a way to get firefighters more prepared for climbing over and under and around different objects in a house. While a playground will probably not be in a house it was a way to practice in a fun way and a fun way to interact with one of the neighboring fire stations. The LCFC would like to thank Ridge Fire Company and its crew for participating in the drill and the West Vincent Elementary School for allowing the company to use its grounds.

 
   
   
Firefighter Bowling
Monday, June 23, 2014
-
The LCFC has been coming up with some new fun ways of practicing on Monday nights. This new game was thought up by one of the stations juniors. The game is firefighter bowling. The goal of the game like bowling is to knock down the pins or in this case the cribbing (used in vehicle extrications). Firefighters took a roll of hose and then unrolled it to try and hit the cribbing. Points were given for the amount of cribbing pieces knocked over and then as soon as the course was set up again the bowlers had to roll the hose up as fast as they could to receive more points. This game helped to build on hose rolling skills and unrolling skills.

 
   
   
Hoselines
There are always new and improved ways to do things in the fire service. On Monday night the LCFC crew decided to practice pulling hose lines but instead of just trying one way of packing the hose lines they practiced a few different ways. In the end the active crew voted on what hose lay they liked the most and continued practicing with it and applied all needed changes to all of their hose beds.

 
   
   
Hoseline Maze
Monday night drill nights are a time for the LCFC crew to practice on different aspects of fire and rescue operations. This training was based on what a firefighter needs to do if they get either lost in a building or are told to evacuate a building. A hose line can act as a guide to the door. First because in many cases it comes from outside the building and second off because it allows you to hold on to something and move quickly through a house. To do so firefighters must identify a hose line in front of them and then find a coupling (where two hoses are put together) or the nozzle. If they find the nozzle they are able to go away from it and find the way out. If they find a coupling they must identify the female part of the connector and follow it out. To make this drill harder, 200ft of hose line is charged and cramped into a small space where it turns and goes under itself multiple times making it harder to make sure you stay on the hose line going the correct way.

 
   
   
Junior Training
Training is a big part of the Ludwigs Corner Fire Company every Monday night the active crew meets to practice on many different types of skills that are needed to effectively and quickly be able to do our job. This night the LCFC juniors were practicing gear drills. The first thing you have to do for any call is put on the proper PPE (personal protective equipment). To make it fun the juniors had to put on all of their gear in 60 seconds and have it all on correctly then they battled it out to see who could do it the fastest.

The Ludwigs Corner Fire Company was dispatched to a brush fire on Saturday April 12th around 2:30pm. Upon arrival Deputy 73 (J. Kimes) advised that there was approximately half an acre well off and extending. Brush 73 arrived onscene quickly and the crew pulled a booster line and took off up the hill to cut the fire off before it could spread more. Engine 73-1 was next onscene. The crew dropped a supply line at the bottom of the drive way then continued up where crews assisted in fire fighting operations and water operations. Tanker 73, Engine 73-1 and Rescue 73 were soon also onscene and sent crews up the drive way to assist. Deputy 73 called for two more companies to help. Chief 48 (J. Seese, Glenmoore Fire Company) arrived and helped by taking command so Deputy 73 could continue with operations. Tac48, Engine 48-5 and Squad 48 along with Squad 69 (Twin Valley Fire Department) assisted at the scene with water operations and fire ground operations and support. Elverson Ambulance also responded and helped by setting up a rehab station for the firefighters. As the crews were working to put out hotspots Station 73 was dispatched to a second call, a motorcycle accident at Rt.100 and Fairview Road. Some of the crew that was working at the fire was asked to take the Rescue Truck and respond to the call. The crew from Rescue 73 and Engine 73-2 provided medical services and traffic control until the ambulances arrived onscene along with the tow truck. The LCFC would like to thank all the assisting agencies for their help and quick response. It was with their help that all operations went smoothly and efficiently.
