MEMBERS ATTEND THE HOTTEST TRAINING CLASS POSSIBLE
- Imagine turning your oven on full blast, then even getting it hotter, then stepping inside of it! Well this past Saturday Firefighters A. Vanselous and X. Davis did just that, or close to it. They attended a flashover simulator in Burlington County at their Fire Academy. This class puts firefighters into the hottest environment possible to allow them to understand and come face to face with an actual flashover.
Attached is a link to the Mantua Township Fire Department's video from that day. The Mantua Fire Department was generous enough to allow our members to join them in this training opportunity. Thank you to Chief Hauss for allowing this to happen and we look forward to future training together.

On Saturday 4/22 members traveled to the Burlington County Fire Academy to conduct training in the flashover simulator. This great training opportunity showed what firefighters should look for when a flashover is about to happen and also how to avoid a flashover. The video below was from a Thermal imaging camera that shows the actual temperature inside the simulator. The Mantua Fire District would like to thank the instructors of the academy for this great training. ... See MoreSee Less

Busy day for members of the department. A number of members are continuing to better our craft while attending various classes today, such as Flashover training and Incident Safety Officer. Members will also be performing funeral detail for a fallen brother from Westville. Another member is spending the weekend with NJ-TF1 and participating in Operation Fallout. Operation Fallout is a disaster drill that prepares the team for various large scale incidents, like apartment building collapses or terror attacks.
Thank you to the members who give up their time to better themselves, the company and the community, not just this weekend, but throughout the year.
