Firefighter Training Class Ongoing…

The Volunteer Firefighter Certification class is nearly halfway over this month.  The month of May saw students working hard at the site of a previous structure fire in 2011.  The owner of the structure allowed us the use of the undamaged portions of the home for training and simulation.  Students were required to conduct primary and secondary searches of the home.  Students were also allowed to function as members of the RIT team when “problems” were encountered.  The students and instructors had a great time and we will likely be doing this again in the next few weeks to prepare students for the “what ifs” they may encounter out there in the real world. 

MVA’s in May…

We have been somewhat behind in getting the website updated and hope to have that remedied in the next few days.  Units from South Sumter Stations have responded to several motor vehicle accidents in the South Sumter area during the month of May.  With the upcoming holiday weekend we hope that residents and travelers are safe on area roadways.

This MVA sent a local man to the hospital with non-critical injuries.  The accident occurred on County Road 10 just south of the Cuba City Limits. 

Damage done to a transfer truck as a result of a May 12th accident at the Alabama/Mississippi State Line.  Units from Cuba, Siloam, and Toomsuba (MS) responded to the scene of the two vehicle accident that involved two transfer trucks (one of which was a fuel tanker).  The cargo was not spilled and the accident scene was turned over to Mississippi units. 

 This accident happened on County Road 2 and sent one area man to the hospital.
