Kootenay Boundary Regional Fire Rescue was conducting live fire training adjacent to its fire hall on Saturday. The training is being delivered by the Justice Institute of BC utilizing its new live fire trailer. The trailer allows for controlled propane fueled fires to deliver a safe live fire training experience for firefighters. The trailer prop is designed to simulate fire attack from a simple room and content fire to evolutions that require above and below grade fire attack. There are also props that simulate car fires, liquid fuel fires and class A (wood) fires. After completion of the training the firefighters will accomplish their Live Fire I & II certification. Another set of training sessions will occur in the same location this coming weekend. The public is asked to stay out of the area where the training occurs but is welcome to watch from the sidewalk adjacent to the brake check area.
