The Fortuna Volunteer Fire Department will be holding a practice training burn on a small structure located at Fortuna Junior Academy on 1200 Ross Hill Road on Sunday beginning at 8 a.m. The training will include numerous evolutions of interior training burns with the final demolition of the structure expected around 2 p.m.
This training will allow many less experienced personnel the opportunity to experience live fire in a controlled environment where they will study fire behavior and fire development, and practice fire suppression activities. This opportunity will also allow more experienced personnel to take a command role in the operational side of a structure fire in dealing with incident command, fire attack objectives and strategies, water supply and fire scene safety.
