2015 Rookie School Week 5

The Granbury Volunteer Fire Department conducted an acclimation burn and portable extinguisher training during this week’s session of the 2015 Rookie School. Rookies from GVFD and some Hood County departments experienced their first live burn of this school to observe and analyze fire behavior, get used to wearing their SCBA and PPE, as well as experience a real¬†Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health (IDLH) atmosphere.

After the acclimation burn, the class used various kinds of portable fire extinguishers to extinguish a flammable liquid fire.
