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.
