Hiawatha fire dept. to perform live fire training

Posted: Updated:
HIAWATHA (KWWL) - The Hiawatha Fire Department will perform live fire training Oct. 18 and 19.

The exercises will take place at an acquired house located at 865 N. Center Point Rd. in Hiawatha.

Fire fighters will perform live fire sets to simulate real house fire conditions. The training Saturday is expected to take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Sunday, the department plans to perform additional live fire sets, and then burn the structure down. The training Sunday is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m.

Fire fighters say such performances allow training in a controlled setting, and allow fire fighters to get experience doing tasks that cannot be simulated by other training methods.
