By Lieutenant Justin Loja
May 23, 2023

On Tuesday night, firefighters from CVFD, went over our different types of chainsaws on the trucks, and how to appropriately start them. They also practiced cutting pieces of wood to get a feel for the tool. Members also trained on the roof saw and used a roof simulator to train on making cuts on a roof for ventilation purposes. This technique is used to reduce the smoke condition and heat conditions inside a structure so that it is easier for the interior crews to navigate inside and attack the fire. Eachfirefighter paired up and took turns on cutting and on the pike pole to sound the roof and break through any materials once the roof was cut open.
