Attend our First Saturday Drills program, held the first Saturday of each month. FSD is a 4-hour training initiative focused on improving how all mutual aid partners interact on emergency scenes. It serves a secondary purpose of assisting all seven agencies involved in getting to know our personnel better. Training schedules are detailed below and held at the assigned station for that given month.

What To Expect

  • Training will be conducted on the 1st Saturday of every month. The assigned Engine is to be at Daggett Fire Station 372 by 1800 (unless directed otherwise.)
  • Training will be for a minimum of two hours.
  • Personnel are to participate, and on scheduled days, facilitate training.
  • First Saturday Drills will be the time to address concerns, issues, and establish a better working relationship with mutual aid partners.
  • All mutual aid partners are encouraged to participate regardless of assigned rotation.
  • As a courtesy, First Saturday Drills Coordinator will remind Chiefs and Captains of the next scheduled training, one week prior.
  • This mutual aid training effort is a work in progress, suggestions to improve are welcome.
  • First Saturday Drills Coordinator is currently FF Corey Sierra. Any issues that arise during emergency incidents please contact Corey via the form on our contact page. (This is so he can relay the concerns to the appropriate supervisor, and it can be addressed and resolved.)
