Everyone should be sleeping well after the drill held at the old Cuba school today.  Seventeen firefighters from the Cuba, Kinterbish, Siloam and Ward fire departments were present for the training/drill on SCBA and search techniques.  A few new recruits were in attendance as well to see what this is all about.  Not only was the exercise today a great success, but the question from all present was how soon can we put this together again.  One thing is for sure…  This drill will be back in just a few weeks and let’s hope that we can continue to  improve on our skills when the day arrives. 

Special thanks to Chief Pendergrass and Safety Officer Holder for their donation and preparation of the lunch that was enjoyed by all attendees.
