TRAINING VIDEO’S & MORE 2024
Firefighter training Video December 11th 2023, Station 36 did basic firefighter skills training. RIT training, also known as Rapid Intervention Team training, is a crucial component of firefighter training at a fire department. It focuses on preparing firefighters to respond to a situation where a fellow firefighter becomes lost, trapped, injured, or disoriented while operating inside a burning structure or hazardous environment. RIT training equips firefighters with the necessary skills and techniques to quickly locate and safely rescue their comrades, ensuring the highest level of safety and effectiveness in fire ground operations.
November 6th 2023, Station 36 did basic firefighter skills training. We trained on, Hose advancements involved deploying and advancing a charged hose line to extinguish fires and protect occupants. We also trained on, Proper ladder placement which is necessary for accessing elevated structures, providing ventilation, and rescuing victims. This was a great learning experience for all firefighter's especially our Junior Firefighter's. Also had discussions about the importance of proper hose advancements, experience and training is important since a misdirected hose could result in the spread of the fire or cause damage.
On Oct 2, 2023, Northeast Stokes Fire & Rescue participated in a training exercise with South Stokes Fire & Rescue, which focused on using Turbo Drafting to source water for firefighting. The Turbo Drafting method is a reliable and effective technique for quickly acquiring water from nearby sources, such as ponds or rivers, which can be a vital resource in firefighting efforts.
On Monday September 25th our members trained on fire scene setups and relay pumping. We recently upgraded our supply lay to 4” hose, and this will help with future insurance ratings and on scene performance. Our members set up a mock simulation on how we would lay in a driveway to a house fire. We have trained hard as of recent on this very thing, as making sure this initial setup will help dictate the beginning of a fire scene a positive start.
Station 36 is constantly trying to improve our skill level and perfect our craft. This past Monday night training, we held mutual aid training at a local farm with Madison Rockingham Rescue Squad. We ran agriculture rescue training(which many of our members hold specialties in) involving a tractor rollover on a patient. We utilized some new rescue equipment we recently received on a state grant, and also set up a rope rescue mechanical advantage system for patient extraction due to low slope angle. We want to continue to grow, both for ourselves and the community we serve.
The landscape has officially changed around Sandy Ridge! All the pieces finally came together for us to be able to set our water point tanks and our training center. When I say it takes a village, it absolutely does!! Ryan, Jaden, Camo, and Alan worked for 2 days getting tanks transported and set into place. And Michael showed up like a blister at the very end. We greatly appreciate them taking the time out of their busy lives to give to this department. Also we would like to recognize the following people and businesses that helped us along the way on this project!! We still got a long way to go but we are finally making progress!

Feb 21st 2023 Station 36 was dispatched to a residential structure fire with multiple exposures and brush fire. Upon arrival 19-36 reported one structure fully involved with a single wide mobile home and another abandoned residence as exposures along with a large brush fire. Due to weather conditions the fire moved extremely fast and had reached the other 2 structures prior to the arrival of a fire engine. Quick work allowed only minor damage to the other two structures. Thanks to Madison FD, Mayodan FD, Northwest Rockingham FD, Stokes Rockingham Fire & Rescue for their assistance.
