City Leaders Learn What Firefighters Go Through Every Day
Boise, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) - Have you ever wanted to step-into a firefighter's shoes or boots, I should say for a day?
Several city leaders in the Treasure Valley traded their suits and ties for full fire gear this weekend.
They spent time living the life of a firefighter doing everything from climbing aerial ladders and extricating people from cars to using a chainsaw for ventilation.
City leaders say the experience was fun but also helps them understand the challenges that firefighters face to keep our community safe.
