Firefighters Get Hands On Training

Posted: Updated:

Firefighters from all over the country are now better prepared to save lives, thanks to some hands on training they received in San Diego.

The firefighters dealt with real-life situations, like how to handle a fire in a multi-level structure, during Sunday's drill at the Naval Training Center.

This type of training helps prepare them for when the unexpected occurs.

"We're making another one go in there and have a hose that breaks, and they have to replace it on the fire to make sure they can still get water on the fire," firefighter Mike Dugan.

Firefighters also practiced search and rescue techniques.

Sunday's training was part of the Firehouse World Convention taking place throughout this week.
