Hawthorne Fire Dept. preforms walk through of new construction

On Saturday, February 10th, members from the Hawthorne Fire Department performed a prefire planning walk through at the new Hawthorne Square, a 142-unit apartment complex on Central and Fifth avenues.

The walk-through allows everyone from the first-due engine company to the rookie firefighter to walk through and discuss different fire and emergency scenarios and to discuss and confirm building construction; fire loads; forcible entry; water supply; fire protection equipment (fire alarms, sprinklers, standpipes); attack strategies; ventilation; RIC; hose size, length, and gpm selection; and previous experience.
