Firies sharpen their skills

The Cobar Fire Brigade Station 256 crew underwent refresher training last Tuesday night using the Fire and Rescue NSW BA Hazmat trailer. Using their breathing
apparatus and working with low visibility, the trailer provided a simulated
smoke-filled room. The equipment, while it does make their environment workable, is heavy and bulky and combined with the adrenalin, stress, flames, heat and danger of a fire, it can make an incident all the more challenging. The local brigade members work to keep their skills sharp to ensure they are always prepared for anything! ▪
