RFC held a live burn drill at the West Chester Fire Department's training grounds on Saturday morning.
Engine 15 and Squad 15 brought ten firefighters.
Paoli Fire Company sent Engine 3-5 (tanker) with a full crew to train with the Radnor firefighters.
RFC Deputy Chief Michael Maguire coordinated the training with Paoli Lieutenant Randy Patton.
Firefighters went through several evolutions, simulating basement fires and fires on the upper floors of the structure.
Each team that entered the structure was a combination of Radnor and Paoli firefighters.
The drill started around 8 AM and wrapped up by noon.
After returning to RFC, firefighters spent another hour cleaning air packs, tools and hose.
