2023 was a busy year for East Brandywine Fire Company.

As the municipalities we serve continue to grow in population, so does the need for Fire / EMS service. Our 100% volunteer organization responded to 801 emergencies in 2023, many being serious incidents.

EBFC 49 thanks our community for the generous and continued support of the local fire company.

EBFC volunteers gathered for their final weekly training session of 2023 Wednesday Night.

Training Officer Peta led one of our most popular drills, the right front seat drill. This training session allows for all members to review the duties of the officer seat in the fire truck. The firefighters practiced mapping and directions, radio transmissions, on scene size ups, and multitasking.

Fighting fire in a structure is one of the most dangerous tasks our volunteers undertake. As part of our weekly training program, EBFC volunteers completed part 1/2 of their annual Firefighter Survival refresher training last Wednesday.

These skills are designed as a "last ditch effort" for a firefighter to exit a structure quickly, should they become trapped by fire. Crews practiced multiple evolutions of ladder bailouts, and rope/webbing bailouts.
