The WFD Junior Fire Academy began yesterday. Students filled out accountability cards, did physical training, had a lesson on the Incident Command system and learned about Personal Protective Equipment.

Day 2 of the Junior Fire Academy: The students toured the Middlesex County Fire Academy. The group did a walk through of the "maze" which firefighters use to train to navigate and search in total darkness, they watched a live burn demonstration and learned about our thermal imaging cameras, participated in physical training and toured the County HazMat - Emergency Management center.

Day 3 of the Junior Firefighter Academy: Students learned CPR, the use of AEDs and how to assist choking victims. The Woodbridge CERT gave a tour of one of their rigs and gave an overview of their role in emergency response.

Day 4 of the Junior Firefigher Academy covered motor vehicle extrication and weighted hose advancement. They also worked with an SCBA and a hose dummy for victim rescue. They spent the afternoon learning about hydrants and how to dress the hydrant at a fire. They also worked with high rise packs and hose advancement in an interior stairwell.

On day 5 the students worked on knots, Chemistry of Fire, water supply, hose handling, and radio communications all before the graduation ceremony.
