OCFA Recognizes SMWD for Confined Space Response

OCFAtrenchrescuserecognition (5)

The Orange County Fire Authority has recognized SMWD and its specially trained Confined Space Entry team for its ongoing partnership. The two agencies have collaborated on special trainings and responses for several years. In late December of 2021, several SMWD employees responded to a call for aide from the fire authority during a trench collapse. A special thanks to SMWD’s very own: Tony, Miles, Jimmy, Abe, and Shawn for their response efforts. 

SMWD’s team undergoes special training to enter spaces as small as two feet and as "gassy" as the sewer. They also maintain a special unit equipped with shoring, oxygen, hazardous material suits, and much more.
