In January the East Sooke fire department had received a house they could use for training.
The department held two drills a week for the month with a total of 40 hours of training.
There were approximately 20 volunteer firefighters in attendance per drill.
Training consisted of building construction, forcible entry, ventilation, tic, victim search and removal, fire control techniques, automatic sprinkler systems, firefighter survival training and self-rescue techniques.
East Sooke Fire Department would like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Black for this opportunity.
On behalf of the East Sooke Fire Deptartment Chief Roger Beck and Deputy Chief David Bigelow would like to congratulate firefighter Nathan Pocock on his promotion to Lieutenant.
