On Sunday evening El Dorado fire crew members rescued a kitten from the engine compartment of a car at WalMart.
The kitten suffered some injuries. He was brought back to the station until they could get it into a vet to be looked at. After the vet, they took it to the animal shelter.
The owner of the car it was rescued from showed some interest in the kitten if he was still alive in a few days. He stated he would check with us to see where the kitten was taken to.
So if anyone calls asking about the kitten, it was taken to the animal shelter.
El Dorado firefighter Bryce Scott recently attended The Art of Firemanship Days in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
The training was 3 days in length and covered topics such as engine company operations, search operations, ladders, ventilation, and how to reduce the risk of firefighters losing their lives in house fires.
Along with great training, Bryce was also able to learn drills to bring back and share with the department.
Fire crews trained Tuesday evening on ladders.
Specifically, training centered on the ladders on the new aerial truck.
Holly Refinery recently purchased a new pumper truck. The truck is capable of pumping thousands of gallons of water per minute.
They gave a demonstration Monday evening.
The truck is pretty amazing.
Fire crews made a trip to the local grade school today for their “fun day”.
The new ladder truck was a hit dropping water onto the children below.
Summer will bring about many opportunities to enjoy the water at the local swimming pools.
Have a fun, safe summer.
