FIREFIGHTERS ‘NOT PROPERLY TRAINED’ Question over blaze gear in fire probe
BRAY FIREFIGHTERS Mark O’Shaughnessy and Brian Murray, who died in the Adelaide Villas tragedy, were reportedly not trained in the use of the equipment they were using on the day of a fatal blaze.
Investigators are said to have discovered that the team was using a compressed air foam system (CAFS), which a Dublin-based fireman said would not have been appropriate for a ‘hot’ house fire.
A Bray fireman told this newspaper that no training on CAFS was ever delivered at the Bray station.
Two arrests have been made in connection with the probe, with one more person expected to be questioned before its conclusion. The two people quizzed on suspicion of reckless endangerment were released without charge.
