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.
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.
Doylestown Fire Company held it’s monthly probie/junior drill night on Monday, Feb. 20, at Station 79. Lt. Jeff Kennedy and Chief Engineer 79 Matt Grogan lead the group in the use of power saws on wood and metal. The sparks flew when the metal saw was placed in service.
