Last nights department drill at Station 141 focused on sprinklers. Members practiced sprinkler control to help reduce damage caused by water after a fire was put out or if the sprinkler was activated by malfunction or damage. As you can see, this is quite the dampening endeavor. #vernonfire #training #mondaynights #joinourfirefamily #vernonct #firefighting

Earlier this afternoon, the TVFD, Vernon PD, and a tanker from the Tolland FD worked to control a brush fire behind 1177 Hartford Tpke. Manpower utilized several hand lines and one of our UTV’s (Utility Terrain Vehicle) to bring the fire under control. The Vernon PD assisted fire crews with one of their drones with a thermal camera to identify hot spots. The fire was brought under control within 20 minutes. Excellent work by all involved. #vernonfire #vernonct #brushfire #mutualaid #vernonpd #drone @tollandfiredept

Last night around 11:15pm the TVFD, Ambulance Service of Manchester, and the Vernon PD responded to the area of the 700 block of Talcottville Rd (near Scranton Motors) for a single vehicle accident- rollover. The driver was brought to a local hospital for evaluation. Road conditions were dangerous as the recent rainfall froze creating the black-ice conditions. Photos by @jimmichaudphotography . An hour later, once clearing the accident, at 12:50am the TVFD, Vernon EMS, and Vernon PD responded to East St for a small chicken coop fire with no exposure problems. Units on scene made quick work of the fire. #vernonfire #vernonct #firedepartment #accident #fire
