Kirkland Fire Dept and FIRE TEAM USA Conduct Fire Sprinkler Demo (Photos+Video)

[imagebrowser id=125] Fire marshals, fire chiefs, elected officials, building officials, and other stakeholders from communities across Washington attended a seminar at the Heathman Hotel on Wednesday to learn and share fire prevention methods and alternatives that affect the quality of life in their own communities.

Kirkland Council Member Amy Walen participated in the fire/sprinkler demonstration as a “firefighter on the hose line” in order to experience the full impact of the heat and smoke of a live fire.  She was trained in the use of SCBA (self-contained breathing apparatus) and was fully outfitted in firefighting safety gear during the demonstration which took place at Peter Kirk Park.

Thank you to Sue and Sants Contreras
for the heads up and for sharing their photos.
