On Saturday, July 23rd, the volunteer firefighters from Orangeburg participated in the 1st Annual Fire Training Foundation's Extrication Field Day.  This training was held at the Rockland County Fire Training Center. Orangeburg's scenario was a two car accident with one victim trapped. One car, with the victim trapped, was positioned on top of a jersey barrier and another vehicle. This required the volunteers to first secure / stabilize both vehicles before they started the actual extrication of the victim.

This past week several members of the Orangeburg Volunteer Fire Department took the NYS Live Fire Foam Operations Course at the Rockland County Fire Training Center.  The course was three evenings - Classroom the first evening and then hands on training the next two.  After the initial size up the volunteers needed to calculate how much foam was needed to extinguish and then control the liquid fire.  Then three teams assembled - one team to turn off the leaking valve, one team to provide foam coverage on them and one team to put water on the container to keep it cool.  Teamwork.
