YAPHANK, NY - On Wednesday, November 1st, the Suffolk County Fire Academy held field training drills with some fire departments from Suffolk County. The following departments drilled at the academy, helping to keep up their skills for real life emergencies: The Orient FD came out to the academy to train on various gas emergencies, which included classroom and field training. The Ridge FD did a Rapid Intervention Drill. The Rapid Intervention Team (RIT) is deployed to rescue lost or trapped members at a fire scene. The Brookhaven and Mastic FDs held a joint drill on Taxpayer fires. The two departments are routinely mutual aided to one another for working fires, and so training together helps them to coordinate and operate together on these scenes better.
