Drill baby, drill

The tones of a surprise drill greeted Seward Volunteer Fire Department members on the evening of their weekly meeting last Wednesday. The training exercise turned out both SVFD and Bear Creek volunteer fire department crews to a smoking building at AVTEC's Alaska Maritime Training Center in the Seward Marine Industrial Center. A special purpose metal building contains propane burners and smoke generating apparatus that create conditions similar to structure and maritime vessel fires. Of course, no drill would be complete without an actual emergency call, which resulted in the departure of SVFD Engine #1, Many Wednesday meetings of the SFVD include training exercises and anyone interested in attending can stop by the downtown fire station at 7 p.m. Bear Creek Volunteer Fire Department weekly meetings are at 7 p.m. every Thursday.
