West Hartland Fire Department Celebrates 60 Years

West Hartland FD
 
Part of the fire department's duty is also traffic control, so lots of spectators are not a problem.
Several neighboring departments joined with West Hartland to put on a car crash demonstration.

 
Itís a good turn out on a sunny October 4th 2008 by the looks of the crowd.
For lots of townís people, itís their first experience being this close to the action.

 
Inside the previously wrecked and donated car is a volunteer crash victim.
The driverís door is carefully forced open and the patient is securely fastened to a back board before removal.

 
Some departments have increased their ability to carry extra equipment by using utility trailers,
while others have opted to purchase newer and larger self contained units like the one above.
