A big special thank you to a very sweet young lady Gabby Mauston, the daughter of long time Gettysburg Fire Department firefighter/member Gary (Weasel) Mauston for capturing a photo of me in action at Sunday’s structural burn class. Exercising safety first of course with helmet and shorts 😀
The Gettysburg Fire Department hosted a 16 hour structural burn class over the past week and today, held a “live burn” on a house donated by a local church along Table Rock Road in Gettysburg Pa. At the end of the class, the house was lit on fire one last time to burn it to the ground. While on fire, a group photo was captured to remember the educational and fun day of training.
Gettysburg firefighters were dispatched to a dumpster fire next to a home Sunday afternoon. Units arrived to a working construction type dumpster fire. Due to extremely high temperatures and heat index (105), a rehab station was established for firefighter safety. Barlow and Bonneauville Fire Departments assisted on scene.
