MATTOON, Ill. (WCIA) — The fire department is preparing for fires before they happen by getting a lay of the land.

This week, crews have been going on walking tours of several downtown businesses.

They’re also going through some buildings under renovation.

Leaders say being able to better know the layout helps during an emergency.
