On Tuesday night firefighters went over Search and Rescue techniques for a primary search. Firefighters started the drill by reviewing the tools that can be used to help with Search and Rescue. Officers first walked-through the drill to explain primary search objectives and best practices. This was followed up with a scenario in which firefighters needed to search several rooms to find a simulated victim. Firefighters performed the search two times; one with the lights on and one with the lights off.
