Flocktown Road Drill - April,  2004 

Firefighters were recently afforded the opportunity to drill on a vacant house that was being demolished to make room for new construction. Artificial smoke was used to create realistic fire conditions. Firefighters were able to practice fire attack, ventilation, search & rescue and emergency evacuation techniques.
