Special Team

The Lloydsville Volunteer Fire Department has incorporated a Division of Special Rescues which includes:

Swift Water Rescue: The department first certified in the early 1990's, but has grown since. Now 8 members are certified swift water rescue technicians through the PA Fish and Game Commission and The PA State Fire Academy. We have a few other members who are working towards the same level of certification. The department is part of the Westmoreland County Swift Water Rescue Team (Westmoreland Team 175 consisting of our department, New Alexandria VFD, and Bradenville VFD). In recent years the team has seen deployments to the greater Harrisburg area in 2011 to assist with flooding from Tropical Storm Lee, as well as many local deployments for rescues on both water and ice. Countless hours of training have been spent to keep the team in a constant state of readiness.

Rapid Intervention: As an initiative taken in by Crabtree VFD, Forbes Road VFD, New Alexandria VFD and Lloydsville VFD, through funds provided by grants, the department acquired equipment and put almost all of our members through training to certify in Rapid Intervention, which is a team put together used to rescue trapped, injured, or disoriented firefighters. We currently provide these services for local departments and to those who request it.

Technical Rescue: In the same initiative as Rapid Intervention, the same departments took time to train in special technical rescue aspects such as rope/high angle rescue, confined space rescue, structural collapse rescue, and wild land search and rescue. A few members also certified in CORE Rescue which is the basic rescue skills required to be recognized and national rescue technicians. The department works to provide continued education, and looks for new members wishing to add their expertise.

 

Anyone who is interested in joining the team, either from another department, or they don't want to fight fire but are interested in the special rescue aspects, can see any one of the department members to receive an application for the special teams. Training will be provided as it can be attained and equipment will be distributed.
