LOOK: How'd the Fire Department Do That? Week-Long Training Wraps Up
The firefighters at Station 1 tested their patience, accuracy and teamwork while doing various hands on training scenarios with traffic cones.
From Fire Capt. Mark Stone:
"This week was hands on training with Tower — our aerial platform. This training was designed to get firefighters comfortable with the controls and feel of moving the aerial around in close proximity to objects or 'hazards' while requiring them to fine tune their movements. Four traffic cones were placed at various heights, on the ground, on a light pole and even on the roof of Station 1. The object was to lower another traffic cone suspended 10 feet below the bucket onto the stationary cones with radio assistance from the ground."
