Suffolk County Fire Academy Training - Commercial Structure Fires
By Deputy Chiefs Mark Donnelly
May 1, 2022

On Thursday April 28, 2022 WRFD attended a training class for commercial structure fires at the Suffolk County Fire Academy (SCFA) in Yaphank. Due to the large number of firefighters needed to battle a commercial structure fire, Rocky Point Fire Department personnel joined WRFD at this training class. Members learned about the differences in building construction, strategy and tactics used when a fire in a commercial structure occurs as compared to a residential structure. The fire fighters also worked on honing their skills in searching for victims, victim removal, laddering, ventilation and large handline operations. The SCFA instructors provided critiques, points to consider and passed on knowledge and experience to keep the firefighters safe. Thank You to SCFA and RPFD!
