On Tuesday night, 20 of Cutchogue's Bravest once again traveled to the Suffolk County Fire Academy Yaphank for live fire training.
The firefighters participated in the "Class A" drill.
This drill simulates a dwelling fire a two story home. The Drill is held in a specially designed building that replicates a typical residential home similar to those found within the Cutchogue Fire District.
Firefighters participated in 2 different evolutions under live fire conditions that tested their skills under the watchful eyes of Suffolk County Fire Academy instructors. Many of these scenarios are designed to replicate real life situations that firefighters have occurred throughout our nation
The Cutchogue Fire Department like many other fire departments in Suffolk County, routinely travel to the Fire academy several times over the course of the year to participate in different training evolutions.
Tuesday marked the last of 6 times that CFD will travel to Yaphank this year for training.
The Officers and Members of the Cutchogue Fire Department would like to thank the instructors and entire academy staff and for giving us the skills and knowledge to help us protect our community.
