Train like your life depends on it because it does!

WPFD had a great time training this morning with a Live Burn exercise. Crystal Fire hosted us today for quality time in their burn box that simulates a structure fire location with multiple rooms, entrances, and more. Practical training like this provides controlled conditions for exposure to fire, heat, and smoke in a way that allows us to enter, navigate, search, and extinguish a live fire. It is a great hands-on experience, especially for our newer folks. We appreciate the opportunity to get quality exposure to fire conditions in a safe manner. Thanks, Crystal Fire Department, Chief Forshee, and Bill Ridgeway!
