Fair Haven Fire Department Maze Training at Wayside Fire Company
On Monday evening, members from @Fair Haven Fire Dept. Station 13-1 came to Wayside Fire Company to utilize our state certified training facility (maze) to teach probationary/cadet firefighters some of the basics behind search and rescue. Under the supervision of LT. 2-69 and other Wayside firefighters, these firefighters practiced right handed searches, wall breaches, low profile movements, and various obstacles/entanglements all in low visibility with the 2-in-2-out method. By giving these younger firefighters a sense of some things that they may face in their future career now, they are able to build upon their strengths and weaknesses to better themselves and other firefighters around them.

Yesterday evening, at 5:05 PM, District 36 RIT (Comprised of Rapid Intervention Team Members from Tinton Falls Fire Company No. 1 and Wayside Fire Company No. 2) were dispatched to Armstrong Blvd in Oakhurst (Twin Brook Village Apartment Complex) for a 2nd Alarm working structure fire. Chief 2-66 along with Ladder 2-90, Rescue 2-85 and Engine 1-76 responded to the scene with a total of 14 RIT Members. Once on location, Chief 2-66 took over RIT command and split up the RIT Members into 2 active teams led by LT. 2-69 and LT. 2-70 to cover a full 360 of the structure. The crews set up various ground ladders on both sides of the structure to assure safe means of egress for members operation on the 2nd division as well as the roof. A great aggressive and safe stop by Oakhurst Independent Hose Company No. 1 to control the blaze and minimize the damage. Great teamwork by all agencies involved!
