The Sharon Fire Department has opened a "Smoke House" training center in Sharon Valley. The training center is capable of creating blackout smoke conditions where firefighters can work in zero visibilty conditions to practice Rapid Intervention Team (RIT) deployment for saving trapped or in trouble firefighters and saving civilian victims. Different scenarios can be run to provide training in a safer environment.
The training center is also available for other departments to train in.
To schedule a time at the center please contact Carl Wilson, Bob Carberry or Tom Bartram at 860-364-5254
Please check the File library tab for the order form for House 911 Numbers. All addresses are required to have 911 numbers visible.
