04-05-2013 Fire Academy Burns House to the Ground

Earlier this week, fire training instructors showed the recruits how to search for fire victims with no visibility, either because their masks were obscured or because the house was full of smoke. Later in the week individual rooms were set on fire and the recruits gained valuable experience putting out real fires.

This morning, after cutting extra holes in the house and loading it up with straw and old pallets, the house was set ablaze and allowed to burn to the ground. If they make it all the way through the fire academy, the 22 fire recruits will graduate on June 27, 2013.


* Following established tradition, the class photo was taken while the house was burning down. That photo and a few others in low resolution are attached.
