In Station Training Drills

CCVFRA companies are invited to join Companies 1 and 2 for their in station training drills. The goal is to complete the drills on the 4th Thursday night of each month. The start time for drills will vary between 6:30 & 7:00 pm. The drills will likely be approximately 1.5-2 hours in length so as we do not over burden anyone due to work schedules for those members attending. Also, as mentioned - we will alternate months hosting so that each department can provide the instructor or contact person for the drill. As the program develops, other topics may be planned for future dates.

  • Coming soon.
