ALLENDALE, N.J. -- Firefighters from Allendale continued practicing drills at a borough home acquired for training purposes.

On March 8, members focused on firefighter removal tactics including using a hose line to pull someone through a floor and using features included in the turnout gear.

Five days prior, members worked on some ladder basics then moved to the roof to discuss tips and tricks of operating on a rooftop. Inside, they worked on wall breaching and low profile maneuvers. Smoke machines were used to create realistic scenarios.

Training in an actual home setting allows the crew to better hone their skills by allowing the creation of situations likely to be encountered.
