MFD Training – Joint Training with PCFD

Crews attended a joint training session with the Papineau-Cameron Fire Department this past week.

Crews were given refresher/orientation training on how to assemble and establish a portable pump fill site and how to connect to a tanker apparatus.

Once this was complete, crews were trained on proper winter rural water supply operations and how to properly run a fill site during the winter.

Members of the Mattawa Fire Department then got their first ride in a tanker as they left PCFD Station 1 and headed to a staging area. They responded as PCFD would during an incident and had to set up a fill site and fill the tanker.

After this was completed, 2 MFD members and 2 PCFD members conducted the same evolution, but this time working together to further strengthen interdepartmental functionality.

Once this was completed new members of PCFD were given a tour of Mattawa’s Pumper 08, while members of MFD were given a tour of PCFD’s Station.

Joint training such as this, allows the two departments to further strengthen bonds, tactics, and techniques. It also allows members to meet each other outside of responses, further enhancing operations on scene.

The Mattawa Fire Department would like to extend a warm thank you to the Papineau-Cameron Fire Department for their hospitality and teaching.
