West Redding firefighters train with new air packs

West Redding Volunteer Fire Department has some new equipment.  On Monday night, members drilled on the new 3M Scott Fire & Safety X3 Pro SCBA Self Contained Breathing Apparatus, to become familiar with the new packs.  The firefighters were assisted with their training via Zoom by Shipman's Fire Equipment Company.   The West Redding firefighters used the modular training prop to simulate any sized room, or hallway.  The facility has doorways and windows which allow firefighters to practice tactics like Vent Enter Isolate Search.  They practiced search methods while breathing on the new air packs, and had the building filled with artificial smoke to provide blackout conditions for firefighters.
