Start training again!

Hello everyone,

Long time no see. Here is another blog from me. The last couple of weeks we have been at home because of the corona virus. The week before corona we had the last class before the exam life saving.
In this class we did the CPR and the ABCDE method. Everybody was really focused and did the best they could. The next week we should have the exams but then the corona virus came. So from then on the classes and the exams were cancelled. Now we have to wait until we can move on. So we have to work from our e-learning environment and every Wednesday we have meeting at zoom or teams with our class. So we stay in touch and we can ask our questions to our instructors.

Stay Home and stay safe.

The crew training

I have been busy with training for a while now.

Little by little the material becomes more and more difficult. Sometimes a lot of homework and sometimes not much and in addition we have the LWPO (apprenticeship assignments) that we have to do together with our supervisor at our own post. These are, for example, assignments such as what is in the TS, your own catchment area and a trail with breathing air. I have now completed these assignments by creating a report.

At the training we are now mainly exploring and entering.

And walk a lot with breathing air. Last week we walked in smoky space for the first time. This took some getting used to because your view was so limited that you saw nothing. We also had to enter our mask with a piece of foam and look for a victim. This was very special, especially because you saw nothing at all and you had to do everything by ear and touch. And of course you have to

Trusting each other. Hereby I was able to feel my first breathlessness. That was a shock but good school is there to learn and I now know how I have to deal with this.

We are also very busy with communication, what do you pass on to the commander, for example.

All interesting lessons and chapters that we cover. It is especially a lot of practice which is also nice because I am doing a lot


In 3 weeks we are going to Wijster for the first time. And so we are really going to practice with fire, I am naturally looking forward to this. I am really curious how the heat feels. What this day was like I will tell you in my next blog. For the first time a week vacation, but me

Don’t sit still, of course. We just practice on our own department!

Until the next blog.

Hoi Allemaal,

Allereerst bedankt voor het bezoeken van 112FireRescue. Joris Joris heeft mij benaderd om voor jullie elke maand een blog te gaan schrijven, wat ik super leuk vind!

So here’s my first blog on 112FireRescue.

Ik zal mij eerst even voorstellen. Mijn naam is Sharon Draaisma. Sinds dit jaar ben ik aspirant bij post Joure en sinds Juni ben ik begonnen aan de manschap opleiding.

Een maand geleden heb ik de instagram pagina @Brandweer.meisje opgezet @brandweer.meisje omdat ik het leuk vond om mensen te laten zien wat de opleiding tot manschap inhoudt en het werk als vrijwilliger bij de brandweer. En natuurlijk hoop ik mensen en vooral meisjes/vrouwen warm te maken voor het werk bij de brandweer. Zoals eerder gezegd ben ik aspirant bij de post Joure. Joure is een klein plaatsje in Friesland.

We practice every Monday night and in addition I have every Wednesday a training evening at the barracks in Sneek. My blogs will mainly be about the training to manhood as I just started the training so in my blogs you will mainly come across what we deal with during the training, the practice days, the assignments we have to make and what it is like to work with the ELO (learning environment of the fire brigade) I hope to give you a little bit of a good idea of ​​what the training to manhood means. In the following blogs I will write something about the first lessons and assignments after the holidays.
