WHFD Trains With Westerly Regional Trench Rescue Team

By Chief Robert Peacock
February 28, 2021

The Westerly Regional Trench Rescue Team is conducting annual refresher training for all team members and all supporting departments.

The Watch Hill Fire Department is part of the regional team and this week the trailer is at the Watch Hill fire station to allow Watch Hill firefighters to review the tools and equipment and to receive their annual operations refresher training.

The trailer will be rotated through all six participating departments during the next six weeks for refresher training and review.

A full scale joint practical training exercise will then be conducted in late April with all six departments as well as the Warwick Fire Department Technical Rescue Team.

The team was originally created by Westerly Ambulance and then expanded to include the four independent Fire Districts serving the Town of Westerly. It was then expanded again last year to include the Charlestown Ambulance and Rescue Service.

The trailer and equipment was originally purchased using a generous grant from the Alfred M. Roberts Jr. Charitable Foundation.

Commander Roberts and his wife were Watch Hill summer residents for many years.
