TVF&R Unveils New Training Trailer

Crews complete hose drill with new training trailer

Over the past five years, TVF&R’s team entrusted with training firefighters has been working on a mobile training trailer that can be taken to fire stations. 

Part of the trailer is designed to resemble a fire engine. Firefighters are able to practice forcing a door, using an extension ladder, and deploying fire hose quickly. These are essential skills needed at the scene of fires.

Firefighters worked with trailer designers on features that allow them to immediately stop training or flowing water from fire hoses so they can respond within seconds of an emergency call. They also worked to ensure the trailer was built to withstand a lot of wear and tear. 

Since TVF&R’s 27 fire stations are located throughout 11 cities in four counties over 390 square miles, it’s not always convenient to go to a training center. It’s also essential that fire crews are ready to respond quickly when an emergency happens nearby.

For more than two decades, TVF&R residents have been surveyed about their opinion and priorities for their fire and emergency medical services provider. Without fail, they always list “fast and effective response” as the top priority. This training trailer helps ensure that firefighters can regularly hone their skills while maintaining response readiness.
