Lenhart Drill - Seven Fire Departments Respond To Bemus Point

On May 19, 25 members of BPVFD trained with 50 members of 7 other departments throughout the day on a evolution we call the Lenhart Drill. The event simulated a working fire on the third and fourth floors of the structure with 20 civilian victims entrapped across the hotel’s 53 rooms. Three dry fire hydrants plumbed by the lake were used to operate 6 of the 18 pieces of fire apparatus on scene to aggressively advance fire hoses to the necessary places and extricate the trapped civilians. We would like to thank the 20 civilians who offered their time to help us continue to train!
