The Eagle Pass Fire Department and Elements from the Piedras Negras Fire unit conducted a Fire Emergency Simulation on Saturday July 22, 2017 in Eagle Pass, Texas.
EPFD Chief Manuel Mello has announced that both departments participated in an all out house fire drill. Mello explains that a home that was chosen and is part of an acquisition of properties by the city for the water treatment expansion will be engulfed in flames.
The drill allowed for both fire departments to practice on fire suppression techniques and other vital fire fighting skills used on the job.
“We appreciate the community assistance and patience in our training simulation. We conduct these simulations to better serve the citizens of both our communities.”
