On Friday, April 15th, crews from Battalion 13 participated in the annual RT-130 wildland drill at Salt Lake Park in Huntington Park.

“As the Department starts to see more brush fires throughout the County, it is imperative that we train our crews, especially our newer firefighters,” said Fire Captain Keith Stires.

This drill is an annual refresher designed to get crews familiar with wildland hose lays, setting up heli-spots, and coordinating with helicopters as well as demonstrating individual survival with their own fire shelters.
