First responders complete parish-wide training session

Communication and Safe Response were the key topics for a recent parish-wide training session. The safety of responders as they proceed to an emergency scene is always a priority. Responders must be aware of the risks and hazards on roadways, whether from other drivers or weather and road conditions.
Once on scene, the initial information provided to others responding is crucial to determine the appropriate resources needed and formulate an effective action plan. Providing a thorough and accurate scene size-up also helps members anticipate potential dangers and ensure a safer and more efficient response. Members from Fire Districts 4, 5 and 6 participated in exercises intended to refresh and reinforce strong communication skills.
