Volunteering with the Tri-Valley Fire Dept.

Every Tuesday night, the Tri-Valley Fire Department here in Healy offers training to those who are interested in volunteering for their department during the season. Last night, a few of us went to their training on how to rescue people from cars with the "jaws of life." It was such an awesome experience.

First, they geared us up in some EMT garb, took us out into a field of junk cars, and walked us through the steps that it took to use the jaws of life.  Oh, and I also got to ride back on their fire truck!!!

Here are a few pictures of the evening:
