Engine & Truck Company Tactics Training - Blackwater Road, Millville, DE
Sunday, March 3, 2013

On Sunday 3/3/2013, members of the Frankford Volunteer Fire Company Station 76, Bethany Beach Volunteer Fire Company Station 70 and Roxana Volunteer Fire Company Station 90 participated in a live fire training exercise sponsored by Millville Volunteer Fire Company Station 84. The training was conducted by Chief Mike Lombardo (Retired) of the Buffalo (NY) Fire Department and concentrated on Engine and Truck Company tactics. Chief Lombardo is a 34-year veteran of the fire service and was the Commissioner/Chief of Department of the Buffalo Fire Department from January 2006 to January 2010. He is a New York State fire instructor and was a member of the development team for New York State firefighter survival and rapid intervention programs. He has been an editorial advisor for Fire Engineering magazine, a member of the Advisory Board for FDIC and lead instructor for FDIC live fire training. He is a two time Firehouse Magazine Heroism Award recipient (1988 and 1994) and the recipient of the FDIC 1999 Training Achievement Award. He is an instructor on fire tactics, live fire attack, firefighter survival, and command throughout the United States. We were very fortunate to have Chief Lombardo provide this training to our members. The exercise provided members with the opportunity to work with neighboring fire companies and hone their skills through multiple live burn training evolutions. At the conclusion of the days' training the firefighters in attendance conducted a controlled burn of the structures at the training site. Ironically, during the training exercise the Roxana (Sta90) and Bethany (Sta70) Fire Companies were alerted for a working structure fire in Shady Dell Park. (See the accompanying photo story for more details on that incident.)
