Fire rescue training

Local fire and emergency teams practice their rescue techniques at the Cilion ethanol plant in Keyes.

POSTED June 27, 2009 6:27 p.m.
The Cilion ethanol plant in Keyes was the site of a mock emergency drill Wednesday with several local agencies training in rescue operations.
Turlock City Fire and Emergency Services rescue team members, Keyes Fire Protection District firefighters, Ceres Emergency Services firefighters and Cilion ethanol plant employees conducted several rescue scenarios, with firefighters rescuing simulated “injured” workers from several different locations throughout the Cilion facility.
Several of the scenarios required firefighters to climb multiple stories of staircases and ladders to reach the simulated patients, complete a “size-up” of the incident, evaluate the patient’s injuries, render medical treatment as needed, secure the patient for removal either down the staircases or via ropes to medical attendants waiting on the ground.
“This training opportunity between the Cilion facility and the local fire departments is a very positive relationship that allows the firefighters the chance to train in a ‘real world’ setting which offers many more challenges and obstacles than are normally available at the various fire department training drill ground locations,” said Turlock City Fire Training Division Chief Brian White.
