On April 22, 2017 members of the Buchanan Engine Company conducted a live fire drill at the Westchester County Fire Training. Members of the Verplanck Fire District and Continental Village Fire Department were invited and also attended. The propane tank simulator, Christmas Tree propane prop and the smoke house were utilized. Subjects covered were tank cooling/fire suppression, "bread and butter" Engine Company Operations, aerial device operations and search and rescue. A special thank you to Instructors Scapperotti, Pisano and McLennan.

We are always looking for other emergency service agencies to drill with, and this will be the start of many drills with neighboring mutual aid companies.
