WGFC Trains on Fire Strategy & Tactics

August 17

The science of fighting fire has changed a lot since the early days of bucket brigades and horse-drawn pumpers. But even over the past ten years, the methods used to fight fire continue to evolve -- and that has been the subject of training at the West Grove Fire Company this month.

To be sure all of that ... (Full Story & Photos)
