Training is the backbone of a fire department. It produces a well-prepared force that through repetition increases the speed of an operation and enhances proper execution while reducing injuries. A firefighter who arrives at an emergency unprepared can be faced with life-and-death situations and will find himself or herself under ex-treme stress to perform his or her duties. Training benefits everyone: the firefighter, the company officer, the fire department, and lastly the community.
At PPFD we strive to train as a team each month to ensure we provide the highest quality of safety to our community and our members. Below are some pictures from our training grounds.
