Air Conservation Training

On Wednesday, June 24th, members participated in weekly training exercises. This week’s focus was on air management, and it was a valuable experience for new members who weren’t yet fully familiarized with air packs and air conservation. Participants wore full gear, including air packs, and played several rounds of dodgeball in the bay. The strenuous activity closely simulated physical requirements on the fire scene, and participants gained valuable knowledge on air conservation.
