March 15 – Members spent two hours training on Monroe Fire Company’s new forcible entry simulator this evening.  The simulator, which was purchased with money awarded through a state grant, allows members to drill on different focible entry scenarios including inward and outward swinging doors.  Members used several different methods to “gain entry” using both one and two person methods.
