The Livonia Firefighters Union held a Fire Ops 101 event that was designed to give City officials and other VIP's the chance to be a Livonia Firefighter for a day. We designed scenarios for each attendee to get a glimpse of what it entails to be a career firefighter/paramedic. Each participant learned what happens on the scene of a cardiac arrest. They performed CPR and learned advanced skills that we use every day to save lives. Attendees also used hydraulic tools to learn how to extricate victims of a motor vehicle accident. The participants also brought hoselines into our training facility to simulate a house fire. Inside they found a victim that they had to bring out as a team. Lastly, we finished the day with two live fire demonstrations in our burn chamber. Each participant got to see how fire grows and feel the heat. Huge thank you to Chief Robert Jennison for his support for this event and sharing his knowledge. Thank you to Livonia Mayor Maureen Miller Brosnan, HR Director Jeannine Liable, Elizabeth Hallack, NP Jennifer Porco, City Treasurer Lynda Scheel, City Clerk Susan Nash, Councilman Scott Bahr, Livonia City Councilman Rob Gjonaj Donovic, Brandon McCullough Livonia City Council, and Laura Toy - Councilwoman for your attendance and support!!!! Councilman Jim Jolly for Livonia, Councilwoman Kathleen McIntyre, and Scott Morgan for Livonia Council also wished to attend but unfortunately couldn't due to other responsibilities.
