Training and Equipment:

EMS in service training was conducted with our Medical Director.

Life Jacket return stations were checked weekly and resupplied.

Crews completed several training simulations with the Live Burn simulator that was located directly behind our station. Sheridan Fire Rescue was gracious enough to let us borrow it for the month of July. Crews were able to complete live fire simulations with their individual engine companies. Casper Fire Department along with Natrona County Fire District sent crews to train within this simulator. MFD crews were able to conduct an extensive amount of mutual aid training simulations.

MFD took delivery and placed into service a 2015 GMC Yukon. This Yukon replaces the 1994 Chevrolet Suburban that the department was using as a command vehicle. The Yukon will serve as the new command vehicle. The only additional thing needed to complete this project will be striping and marking the vehicle. Special thanks go out to the Mills Mayor and Council for making this vehicle possible through the optional 1% money.


Inspections and Prevention:

Engine companies have continued performing engine company inspections. The month of July, crews completed 11 inspections in conjunction with normal daily operations and answering calls.

1 Home visit was completed to replace batteries in a smoke detector of an elderly Mills resident.
