By Fire Fighter/EMT Pieter Lucas
October 9, 2018

WFVFD firefighters and EMTs were invited to the New Market District VFC this evening to participate in a live wire training offered by the Potomac Edison power company. A classroom session was followed by a practical demonstration utilizing a training trailer simulating an electrical distribution system with live electrical wires, utility poles, and transformers. The training was geared towards hazards often faced by firefighters involving electrical lines and transmission equipment.
Below is a video of the practical portion of the training, provided by Steve Buscher. Thank you to the New Market VFC and Potomac Edison for providing this worthwhile training.
