Humboldt Bay Fire will be hosting live fire training for Eel River Valley firefighters on January 23rd from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This class will be taught by Battalion Chief Sean Robertson using a metal shipping container burn prop at our Hilfiker Training Center, only wood products will be burned that will produce smoke. The instruction provided to these Humboldt County firefighters will better prepare them to deal with fires in their home communities.
The Humboldt County Fire Services rely heavily on their neighbors during emergency situations as the majority of departments in Humboldt County are dedicated volunteers. Humboldt Bay Fire is a career agency who also relies on its neighbors to protect our community. This training opportunity will help develop firefighters in the region and allow them to share skills and concepts that will make them more efficient and effective on the fireground.
