Training to stay prepared

ftwashburn500 1

Members of the fire company meet weekly to train. We train for many different tasks, but our core is structural firefighting. On April 16, the fire company traveled to Fort Washington Fire Company’s training center in Upper Dublin to train with live fire in the facility there. The fire company trains in different facilities to get varied scenarios for members to experience, as not all structures are the same, nor is the fire behavior. We want to thank Fort Washington Fire Company for facilitating the training, and Ottsville Fire Company for bringing Utility 94 to the training and covering Station 19 for the duration of the training.

Members Take Advantage of Gym Memberships

The Members of the Doylestown Fire Company were out in the elements during the winter storm of January 2nd and 3rd, 2014. Despite the weather, the volunteers were still able to get in their workout. Many thanks to the Total Fitness Zone for staying open long enough to allow the members coming out to get in a good workout before bunking in for the duration of the storm. The fire company relief association maintains gym memberships for each member to utilize at no cost to help the crews stay healthy.
