Training and Fellowship

St. Stephens Fire Department hosted a training opportunity for area fire departments to come together and train in a controlled setting with some amazing instructors. The house fire allowed firefighters the opportunity to practice fire hose advancement techniques, nozzle techniques, company officer training and much more, but possibly the best thing it provided was the chance for multiple organizations to come together and train as one unified group. The land will be used to build a new EMS base to better serve the community and Catawba County. We would like to thank everyone who came out and helped make this training opportunity possible.
