On Wednesday evening, crews gathered for their weekly training. This week's focus was on firefighter survival.

Crews used an acquired structure to review and practice emergency egress. Specifically, training focused on the window hang. This technique is used to escape heat and smoke conditions while awaiting a ladder or additional firefighters to assist with the rescue. When using proper techniques, firefighters can move themselves to a cleaner environment outside the building but then move back into the building if needed.

The officers reviewed and demonstrated strategies and techniques. The firefighters then practiced this technique. This training was the first of several that will focus on firefighter survival.
