On Saturday, October 9th, 2021, multiple departments from within the Second Battalion participated in a FAST drill at the Oceanside Fire Department training facility. The firefighters present were divided into groups and rotated between six stations. Each station was led by an instructor from within the battalion. Among the topics covered was firefighter packaging, securing a firefighter who fell below grade, taking a firefighter through a window and down and a ground ladder, and a mask confidence style course. Once every member completed each station, they were able to apply what they learned in a live burn scenario. For this evolution dummies were placed inside of the building, needed to be located, and properly removed.
