The Candia Volunteer Fire Department was generously given another house on which to perform a controlled burn and training exercise. This exercise is an invaluable activity that provides an opportunity for our firefighters to practice old skills and learn new skills in a controlled, safe environment supervised by NH State Fire Instructors. The inclement weather on a bitter cold day provided true to life difficult conditions and an added layer of challenge.

Skills practiced during this burn better prepare our department personal in the life saving skills required in the unfortunate event of a structure fire.
