Snyder Firefighters operated as one of the FAST (Firefighter Assist and Search Team) on the scene of a Working Commercial Structure Fire as Mutual Aid to Rescue Volunteer Hose Co. No. 1.
Our duties when assigned this role is to be prepared to effect a rescue of a fellow firefighter if a MAYDAY is called, or if someone is in trouble. Our Members train hard and regularly on FAST tactics and skills. This was the 2nd FAST call made to Cheektowaga in less than 24 hours for Snyder. After nearly 5-1/2 hours of operations at the scene, Snyder Firefighters returned home. Members worked hard to clean and restock gear and equipment. Special thanks to the Members who relieved some of our crews at the scene, and the many Mutual Aid partners who brought water, Gatorade, and food to the scene for firefighters working the fire.
