Day One of Wildland Training Exercises

Today was day one of three consecutive days of wildland fire training exercises also known as bump and run drills.  This is the 27th consecutive year that the San Bernardino County Training Officers Association have conducted these all agency drills.  Firefighters from throughout the San Bernardino Valley and Mountains are participating in the exercises.  Even though we witnessed a great deal of firefighting last week, these exercises are still important.  The exercises included a briefing on the Mountain Area Safety Taskforce (MAST), a fire jel demonstration, 1500 foot hoselay up the mountain side, structure triage and defense along with a fire shelter deployment.
