Fire department trains in the cold


WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Members of the Waterloo fire department were training in Thursday's cold weather.

They were working to get as proficient as possible to get their breathing gear on.  The exercise helps build team work and routine.

"If they had a fire this afternoon, they wouldn't even have to think about it," said training officer Mike Moore.  "They'd know that its on correctly."

The fire fighters cut their time in half by the end of the training.  After 10 or 12 drills, each could put on their gear in less than a minute.
