Roseburg Fire Department to Conduct Training at Old Safeway Site

Roseburg Fire Department

The City of Roseburg Fire Department will be conducting training exercises at the site of the Old Safeway, located at 406 SE Rose Street, from April 22 to May 1, 2019. The training site is currently a vacant building located in Downtown Roseburg.  The training objectives will include Roof Operations and Defensive Fire Operations. 

This training opportunity will allow local firefighters the ability to train together, in addition to continuing the development of their firefighting skills.  Firefighters from Douglas County Fire District #2 will also be participating in the training.

As always, safety will be the number one priority for personnel participating in the training

Roof Operations training will be held on April 23-25, 2019.  Firefighters will work through different scenarios that require them to make access to the roof for various emergency operations.  These operations will include roof top firefighting, vertical ventilation for interior fires, and rooftop rescues.

Defensive Operations training will be held on April 29-May 1, 2019.  Training will allow firefighters to work through simulated large fire scenarios that will require them to use large volumes of water. 

Crews will utilize large hose lines, ground monitors and elevated master streams that will require them to maximize their water supply to achieve needed water delivery for fire extinguishment.
