Sunset Elementary to be site of fire training drills

Friday, November 23, 2012

Shoreline firefighters will be taking advantage of an opportunity to use the soon-to-be-demolished Sunset Elementary School as a site for some skills-based drills this week.

Fire crews will be at the school site from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm on Sunday, November 25 through Wednesday November 28.

Neighboring fire department crews have been invited to participate as well.

The abandoned school structure provides a unique opportunity for firefighters to practice vertical ventilation, forcible entry and hose management in a large building with various structural and construction challenges.

There will not be any smoke or fire during the drills, and the training will be focused on the northwest section of the school.

Neighbors have been notified about the exercises -- and there should be no concern about excessive noise or traffic during the Fire Department's use of the site.

Questions or concerns are welcome. Contact Melanie Granfors at 206-349-7074.
