Vent - Enter - Search


The MFC went to the township burn tower to work on VENT - ENTER - SEARCH. VES is when firefighters either create openings, or break windows to gain access from an exterior position to carry out a primary search in a high-risk area of a structure. VES is performed without the protection of a hose line and is usually performed away from the initial area of fire attack. It is a strategy that is hazardous, but in turn, may reap great rewards for the search team. Meanwhile some of our newer members got a chance to learn how to get a handline in service and get a feel for the burn room wearing an SCBA.
