On June 6th, the members from English Consul trekked up to the West Chester, PA Training Academy for a full day of training. Live fire evolutions focused on engine company operations and helped to hone the skills of the senior members, and to allow for controlled exposure to simulated realistic scenarios for some of the newer members. Special thanks to the Hyde Park Volunteers for the fill-in!
