Members of the fire company spent drill night working with the hydraulic rescue tools on two donated vehicles. Former chief Doug Tilley instructed the members on the use of hydraulic tools for extricating trapped victims of vehicle crashes. This training is invaluable as it keeps the firefighters ready to perform in an actual emergency.

The drill is discussed by instructor and past chief Doug Tilley.
