Village skills day out to Cessnock

Sunday was a great Group 8 day out to Cessnock Training Ground were we spent the day refreshing, re-learning and for some, learning for the first time, village firefighter skills.

Bucketty, Laguna, Millfield and Wollombi all fielded a tanker and crew to the event accompanied by Group 8 Captain Alan and Support Captain Jordis. We all enjoyed a full-on training day dealing with a whole gamut of burning cars, burning structures, injured dummies, injured real-people and a rather nice lunch provided by Lizzie from Support.

The last scenario of the afternoon threw all four Brigades and tankers into a multitude of structure fires in all the buildings at the same time which really demonstrated the excellent team work and comradeship we enjoy between us. Thanks to all for a most excellent day out and hope to see some of you on an upcoming VF Course.
