Welcome to Ludwigs Corner Fire Company

Loss of a Founding Father
Friday, January 9, 2015 
It is with heavy hearts that the Ludwigs Corner Fire Company has to say goodbye to one of our founding fathers. Bob Heitzman was and will ever be a large influence on the LCFC. In the early 70ís, when the fire company was founded, Bob and his wife Joan allowed the fire company to have a home. They allowed the trucks and gear to live in their shop, rent free. Bob was a mechanic by trade which was a great help to a fire company just starting out. He had many stories about fixing the trucks because the company didnít have the option of buying new. In his later years of life Bob enjoyed reminiscing about the good old days and telling stories from the past to the younger members of our station. His words of encouragement and confidence in us, has given members a sense of pride. He has seen the company from where it started to where it is today and all the time in between, contributing in many ways the whole way. Not having his always infections smiling face at events will be greatly missed. Rest in peace Bob we have got it from here.

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.

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.
