10/24/10 72 W, 1 I - + 7 - 9 Raleigh Firefighters Simulate High-Rise Drill

Here's a nice News 14 story about Saturday's high-rise drill at the Archdale Building in downtown Raleigh. The exercise simulated a fire on the tenth floor, and even included an outside-venting smoke machine for added realism. The 94-second clip includes good exterior footage and interviews with a couple firefighters. Participating agencies included Raleigh fire, Wake County EMS, Raleigh police, State Capitol police, and the Raleigh/Wake ECC.

This was a fantastic drill! There was a significant amount of planning for this training and I for one appreciate the RFD efforts! Hats off to Capt. Hobson, BC Johnson, BC Spain, DC Spain, Capt. Siebel, and Capt. Hicks! (apologize if I missed anyone else). Also… notice Engine 8A highlighted (not that I’m biased or anything like that).
