On Saturday January 12, 2018 firefighters from Sheridan Fire-Rescue, Goose Valley Volunteer Fire Department, Big Horn Volunteer Fire Department, and Dayton Volunteer Fire Department gathered for a 3 hour training session on fighting fires in multi-level, multi-living unit buildings. This training was conducted at Heritage Towers, 428 North Jefferson, in Sheridan.
These quarterly drills have been occurring for several years now and all Sheridan County Fire departments are invited to attend. The drills are normally scheduled on weekends or evenings to try and accommodate as many firefighters as possible. Subjects have ranged from fires in homes and commercial structures, hazardous materials incidents, swift water rescue, and high angle rescue. These drills help area fire departments with building skills and relationships that allow for effective and efficient fire fighting and rescue efforts throughout the county.
