The training occurred at the Burn building within the Cortland County Regional Training Center. Firefighters were placed in various scenarios that involved actual fire and smoke conditions. It allows firefighters the ability to monitor changes in heat and smoke to determine a course of action relating to fire suppression and search and rescue.

There were 23 firefighters, both volunteer and career, that participated in this training
“The use of this facility is a wonderful opportunity for the department”, states City Fire Chief Wayne Friedman. The ability to place firefighters in a position to test their knowledge and hone their firefighting skills is imperative for their success in protecting the community. This aspect of the fire department is potentially the most dangerous and although there may be a slight decline in actual building fires the ability manage them safely is important.

A little taste of Cortland Fire

Volunteers in the City of Cortland Fire Department serve in many diverse roles, and use their talents in many aspects of fire department activities. Their commitment to serving the community is what binds the membership, which is comprised of individuals of all ages, experiences and backgrounds. However, because not everyone has a special interest in each aspect of the fire department, our structure allows folks to explore the areas that interest them most.
