An FDNY Lieutenant has led a seminar for Bethel and area firefighters. The class was hosted by Bethel Fire & EMS last night at Bethel High School and taught by Ray McCormack. Members of fire departments across the state learned about Engine Operations in the Modern Fire Environment. Stony Hill Volunteer Fire Company officials say the Engine Company is the workhorse of the fire department and is responsible for getting water on the fire. While it sounds like a simple concept, they say there is a lot of science, technology, and muscle needed to get the job done. Controlling and extinguishing the fire is job #1.
