Representatives from Sheridan Fire-Rescue, Big Horn Fire, Ranchester Fire and Dayton Fire participated in instructor training in the use of the Fireblast 451 ® Mobile Fire Training trailer on Thursday. Trainers from Fireblast 451 ®, the manufacturer of the unit, certified 11 “Fire Control Officers” to conduct live fire training evolutions. The 8 hours of training included familiarization with the operational and safety features of the trailer, start up and maintenance procedures, and hands-on operation of the training equipment and props.
The Fireblast 451® Mobile Fire Training trailer was selected largely based on its ability to benefit all fire districts within Sheridan County. Because it is mobile, the training trailer can be set up and used in Clearmont, Dayton, Story, and other locations. Having an on-site training facility allows departments to keep their crews and equipment in service within their districts.
The Mobile Fire Training trailer is currently located off of North Main St, near the Trail’s End Motel. Firefighters will be conducting several training evolutions during the coming months. The public may notice fire and light smoke in the area.
