The Central York Fire Department is hosting a one-day fire ground operations orientation, including elected public officials, community leaders and representatives of the media.
This program will include actual suiting up in fire fighter protective clothing, donning self-contained breathing apparatus and actually going inside a real fire to experience firsthand the environment in which firefighters work.
On your day as a ﬁreﬁghter you will get to ride a ﬁre engine with lights and sirens, conduct a victim search in a smoke ﬁlled building and feel the heat of live ﬁre, you will perform deﬁbrillation on a victim of cardiac arrest, you will perform a water rescue in our ﬂotation suits. you can take pictures of the Cities that you proudly protect from 100 feet oﬀ the ground from our Aerial/Platform apparatus, you will cut victims out of actual cars using our extrication tools and much more. Sounds exhaustive...it is! Each adrenalin-ﬁlled moment will give you a small taste of ﬁreﬁghting.
Obviously, this will be a controlled situation but will never the less provide an opportunity to see and feel what firefighters face every day. It promises to be a very exciting and informative day.
