The members of Station 293 would like to say a special thank you to Ryan Mull for his Eagle Scout Project. Ryan's Eagle Scout Project was to build a roof/window simulator.

This simulator will be used to train firefighters on how to properly ventilate a roof and to also train on entering and exiting through a window in multiple training scenarios.

The members of Homeville look forward to using this new training tool in their upcoming drills.
