Search and Rescue Training
On January 26 member of the Waterloo FD conducted a search and rescue drill. Members were sent into an area to search and rescue a downed victim. The were wearing SCBA with their masked cover so it was all done by feel and communication with there partner. Above is a picture taken through our Thermal Imaging Camera of a low and high search.
On 1/9/2015 the Waterloo Fire Dept had a busy evening and night. Waterloo was dispatched at 5:05pm for a working structure fire on County House Road in the town of Fayette. Multiple Department through out Seneca County assisted in the cold weather operation to extinguish the 3 hour blaze. Approx 1 1/2hrs after Waterloo Fire had cleared the fire on County House Rd, the Seneca Falls FD had a structure fire at the Cayuga Lake State Park. Waterloo Responded with an engine crew to the scene per 1461. Waterloo assisted with fire attack and overhaul at the structure fire. During that fire a Waterloo Rescue crew on 1641 handled an accident for Seneca Falls FD and then was requested to the scene on the structure fire for the cascade system and manpower. All Waterloo units arrived back in the village around 1am.
A great job by all Waterloo Fire Dept members and all other departments at both fires!!
