The Choctaw Volunteer Fire Department and Bayou Boeuf Volunteer Fire Department participated in the second session of a two night disentanglement training exercise last night at Station #1 in Choctaw. These two organizations were also assisted by Guillot’s Wrecker Services, which is an outstanding local supporter of the fire service.
After learning classroom fundamentals last week, tonight’s exercise gave members an opportunity to have hands-on experience with various tools used for gaining access to and disentanglement of patients by using those tools in various scenarios on two full-size motor vehicles.
The Choctaw Volunteer Fire Department and the Bayou Boeuf Volunteer Fire Department routinely assist each other with various emergencies, and this training exercise provided members with an opportunity to work hand and hand to develop skills that will enable both departments to more effectively serve our communities.
