April 29, 2024 – Training
Luling VFD hosted multi-department training.

Tonight’s training was part 1 of a 2 part training on the Basics of Canal Rescue which was classroom training. Firefighters were trained on the Do’s and Don’ts of water rescue including: Rescue vs Recovery; Eye Protection; the importance of a RIT team (Rapid Intervention Team); tools and equipment utilized (life jackets, life rings, lights, safety belts); dangers of a rescue/recovery operation; actions to be taken after the incident such as de-con, rehab, and evaluation by medical. This was followed by a discussion and Q&A session on the training. Part 2 will be applying tonight’s training in live scenarios utilizing a swimming pool and car prop and will be conducted this weekend.

We would like to thank instructor Mike Rodrigue of Jefferson Parish Fire Department (Eastbank Consolidated.

We would like to thank Luling VFD, Hahnville VFD, Killona VFD, Paradis VFD, Bayou Gauche VFD, and East St. Charles VFD for attending and Luling VFD Training Chief Stephen Stromeyer for coordinating the training.
