On May 16, 2015 members of the Antioch Volunteer Fire Department took part in a training exercise in full turnout gear with SCBA (self contained breathing appliance). The exercise consisted of moving a charged attack line 150 feet, raising a 20 ft extension ladder, moving a dummy 30 feet, and crawling under a garage door. The purpose of the exercise was for the fire fighter to learn how to control his usage of air from the SCBA. Please see more pictures under training tab.
