Training

Image

The dedicated and hard-working members of the Bowman Volunteer Fire Department put in many hours of training at the fire station as well as in classrooms. The result is a highly skilled group of unpaid experts who are prepared to fight fires, respond to medical emergencies, assist at accidents and provide assistance in virtually any area emergency.

Members of the department, near two dozen at last count, attend drills at the fire station monthly. Volunteers learn from their peers about fighting fires, how to best utilize the variety of firefighting equipment on-hand, maintaining and repairing equipment, and responding to other emergency situations. Occasionally volunteers of the department attend drills and classes in other locations in the area, county, and state.

The Bowman Volunteer Fire Department practices year round to handle a wide variety of emergencies, wildland fires, structure fires, auto accidents, household emergencies and virtually any other situation in which someone may be injured. The vast majority of local responses are for non-injury, grassland fire emergencies. Several Bowman Volunteer Fire Department volunteers are EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians), as well as ? Paramedics which are trained to stabilize accident and medical emergency victims until an ambulance can arrive. For critical situations, a helicopter air ambulance may also be dispatched.
