June 19, 2019 Windsor NS. Three departments from Windsor and West Hants fire services came together on Wednesday night to engage in a pre-planned training exercise. The focus of the event took place at the old Windsor Wear Warehouse on Windsor’s waterfront.
The initiative involved approximately 30 personnel from the Hantsport, Brooklyn and Windsor Departments. Also active onsite was the Regional Emergency Operations (REMO), coordinator Angela Henhoeffer.
The exercise began just after 6 pm. Apparatus on site included the use of pumper, snorkel and ladder equipment. One exercise involved the extraction of human-like ‘dummy’ models from the old warehouse. At its conclusion all gear was properly stowed away and the crews gathered for a late barbecue social at the Windsor department.
