Fire Training

by Christa Lollis

So far in 2008 there have been 8000 and 69 fires across the state of Texas.  The Texas Forest Service along with several other agencies have spent the past few days training fireman from across the country to make sure they are ready for any fire they encounter. The firefighters learned about different tools and techniques that can help when trying to put out a fire. They also learned about safety which the firefighters say is the number one priority.
