The station had a visit from the Fire and Rescue NSW BA Hazmat Semi-trailer.

It is one of two specialised training simulators that makes their way around New South Wales to regional areas to ensure that our Fire and Rescue crews have access to the latest and best training opportunities.

The teams skills were put to the test by running a mock scenario where they responded to a granny flat fire that was heavily smoked logged with zero visibility.

Acting Deputy Captain Giacomo Arnott of Fire and Rescue NSW Raymond Terrace Branch told News Of The Area, “We’re very grateful that the Fire & Rescue Breathing Apparatus training trailer visited our station this week and provided essential training for our crew.

“As the urban firefighting force in Raymond Terrace and surrounds, Fire & Rescue must maintain and practice our skills when it comes to fighting fires in confined spaces such as houses, units, granny flats or factories.

“This appliance gives firefighters an excellent opportunity to train in a makeshift simulated house/building complete with rooms, furniture and a variety of dummies.

“The night was extremely beneficial to us all in maintaining and improving our skills to protect our community,” he said.
