On Thursday March 31, Hillsborough Fire Company # 3 junior firefighters learned about the uses and drilled on the Piercing and Cellar (a/k/a Breslin Distributor) nozzles. The juniors learned vehicle fire basics and practiced vehicle forcible entry on a locked hood and trunk using the irons and window punch and witnessed forcible entry with a K12.
The Junior Firefighter Program meets every Thursday evening at the Woods Road fire house. Over the past several weeks, the junior firefighters have drilled on hazardless brush fires, basement pump outs, master streams, dumpster fires and practiced donning SCBA.
