NORWALK, Conn. -- Norwalk firefighters took part in a simulated rescue inside the new Fire Headquarters on Connecticut Avenue.
The training consisted of removing simulated unconscious firefighters from the headquarters building. The training, made possible with grant money, "taught the latest techniques for rapid intervention should a Firefighter become injured or unconscious inside a burning building," department officials said in a press release.
"Connecticut Fire Academy Instructors were able to teach the classes within the new buildings training area, during a heavy rain storm," a press release said. "In the past with the heavy rains outside, training would have been cancelled at our outdoor training area for safety purposes."
