On Tuesday July 31st, the Golden's Bridge FD was joined by Croton Falls FD at the Golden's Bridge Firehouse for some joint training. A brief discussion was done before everyone went into the field to practice hands on. The firefighters and officers from GBFD worked with firefighters and officers of the Croton Falls FD as a team practicing many different skills. Some of these skills included boat operations, search and rescue operations , water rescue operations, communication operations, and general water operations. The two agencies spent about an hour and an half working together. We thank the CFFD for their continued support and taking time out of their schedule to let us train with them! We hope to train with them again in the near future!
