Bravest sharpen skills by training

Danville Firefighter Agreement

DANVILLE, Ill. (WCIA) — The fire department is bringing its training to new heights. The assistant fire chief says crews were practicing rappelling skills at the David S. Palmer Arena.

He says they climbed to the roof where workers would usually be and tried to simulate as if a worker was stuck on the line and needed rescuing. They plan more training for later this month.
