In March, the East Fire volunteers and career firefighters conducted a joint night training. The career staff responded to a structure fire at Station 2 with
a victim inside. The volunteers got to listen in on the communications between the crews and provide logistical support including SBCA bottle changes. The volunteers spent February reviewing
Squad operations and used this training to apply those skills. The communications piece allowed the volunteers to understand what was happening inside and how they could support the career staff on the outside.
