This morning, 17 Ashburn Volunteers traveled to McLean, VA to do some valuable training on an acquired house slated for demolition. Training included Horizontal and Vertical Ventilation, Wall Breaching, Vent Enter Search, Hose Line Advancement and Forcible Entry. The unique thing about Acquired Structures is that Firefighters can train in a realistic environment and actually practice skills at 100%, such as breaking windows and cutting holes in the roof. A special thanks to Wetherburne Homes for donating the house to us.
