Idaho Firefighters Unite For Training
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) You practice to play well in games. You train to fight fires and save lives.
The Rock Creek Fire District is hosting the Magic Valley Fire and EMS Academy this weekend.
72 firefighters are participating from all over the valley with instructors coming from as far as Eagle and Idaho Falls. This is advanced training and definitely not for rookies.
One of the training locations is on Falls Avenue and Blue Lakes Boulevard North.
"This is a great building, it's the old Masonic building, there's 12,000 square feet of space here. They're going to tear it down Monday I think it is and we're allowed to do anything we want, break anything, flow water in it, cut holes, it's wonderful, this is a rare building to have," explains Chief Jason Keller, Rock Creek Fire District.
The training continues on Sunday.
