April 23 Trench Training

On April 23, Engine 20, Rescue 20, Engine 28, Rescue 28, and Battalion 6 held a trench training class at the old water treatment plant below Montopolis (Govalle) that has shut down. The trench rescue specialist station will be #20 and Station 28 will be the structural collapse specialist station; one backs up the other and both stations will respond to these types of calls.

The T-trench that was used in this training was about 6 feet deep and 3-4 feet wide. Many thanks to BC Randell Nations for the pictures below.
