We told yesterday about a series of training exercises involving area firefighters. It’s been a particularly busy week for Eldon firefighters. They train every week on Thursdays. Trapper Meadors says that in addition to the routine sessions, they’ve also got guys working with other area fire departments and conducting specialty training.
Meadors says it’s always best to train with other departments you’ll be working with so that you get experience in the situations you’ll be forced to handle under pressure and get familiar with how everyone functions together.
