Over the past week, members from TVFD and Geigertown Fire Company completed three training classes:

Farm Emergency Awareness
Silo Emergency Awareness
Silo Fire Operations

Members attended 6 hours of in class instruction and 6 hours of field training where we traveled to Morgancrest Dairy to tour their farm operation, pre plan and discuss hazards involved farming operations and silos. Members then practiced setting up Ladder 69 to reach various parts of the silos.
While 22 members took these classes, 3 other members were in various county classes. Thank you to all the members who attended, Rescue Techs for the coming down to teach us, and Morgancrest Dairy for their hospitality and allowing us to utilize their farm.
