October 2015 Monthly Drill - Vehicle Extrication
Last month, members participated in our monthly drill training. This months training focused on vehicle extrication operations - allowing members to train for real life scenarios with overturned/damaged vehicles involved in motor vehicle accidents. Members of Wayside Fire Company No. 2 attended Belwiit Auto Savage Yard to utilize their pad/spare vehicles for the drill. Crews worked together on stabilization; utilizing both high and low pressure air bags, @[243660279004645:274:Paratech Fire & Rescue Equipment] struts, and wood for box cribbing. Crews were also able to utilize tool time with the @[238743569505455:274:Hurst Jaws of Life] - being able to run 6 tools at one time off of Rescue 2-85's XRT system (Cutter/Spreader/Combination/Ram). Due to our first due response area covering several miles of the Garden State Parkway/Route 18, it is essential that our members and trucks are fully equipped and trained to handle any and every situation that may occur.Thank you our local instructors and officers in supervising and providing us with insight on areas we can improve on to better serve our communities, traveling guests and mutual aid companies. Train hard and train often!
Thank you to @[414761985306413:274:Jersey Shore Fire Photography] for the awesome action shots of the drill. Be sure to give them a follow for more local fire photography!

10/27/15 MRHS Pre-K Fire Prevention
On Tuesday, 10/27/15 members from the Monmouth Regional High School child development class attended Wayside Fire Company with their Pre-K students for fire prevention! Members gave a tour of the firehouse, live demonstrations of firefighter gear/tools/trucks, hands on stop drop and roll training, fire hose simulations at targets, as well as an interactive Disney DVD about fire prevention. Overall, it was a humbling experience for our members to be able to teach fire prevention to the Pre-K class from MRHS's child development class. We hope that each student and teacher took something away from this, ensuring that we all remain safe!
