Oswego Fire Protection to Conduct Training Burns Along Adams Street This Week

If you see smoke and fire engines in downtown Oswego today through Thursday, don’t panic. It’s almost certainly a training exercise ahead of new downtown construction.

The Oswego Fire Protection District will be participating in live fire training this week, Tuesday, Jan. 8, through Thursday, Jan. 10, along Adams Street, the future site of The Reserve at Hudson Crossing, a mixed-use residential and commercial development in downtown Oswego.

Through a cooperative agreement with the Village of Oswego, the Oswego Fire Protection District and
developer Shodeen, the wood frame single-family homes on the property have been made available for this valuable training opportunity. The exercises will begin around 8 a.m. each day and be conducted during the regular workday.

The site has been prepared and rendered safe for the live fire training. During the three-day period, the Oswego Fire Protection District will conduct 15 to 20 training fire evolutions to hone their interior and
exterior firefighting skills. These skills include interior attack, vertical and horizontal ventilation, civilian and firefighter rescue as well as command-level exercises. Live training exercises like these are important for Oswego firefighters to develop and maintain their skill sets.

Residents and businesses near the training site can expect minimal disruption to normal activities. For most of the training period, all fire vehicles and equipment will be located on the site, and minimal smoke will be generated.

Questions about the firefighter training should be directed to the Oswego Fire Protection District at 630-554-2110.
