All Public Safety Officers and Volunteer Firefighters meet for monthly drills to practice fire fighting and rescue skills. During 2012, the department conducted 13 fire and rescue drills.
Each year, the employees of the City of Woodway, the Public Safety Department, and the Volunteer Fire Department participate in a mock disaster drill. In the past, disaster drills have covered flooding to a multiple injury accident at the Midway Middle School.
The ultimate purpose of the Annual Disater Drill is to provide practice opportunities to strengthen and enhance the departments’ police, fire, ambulance, and communications skills and to prepare and ready each member’s ability to adapt to ever changing conditions, should an actual emergency situation arise.
