Firefighter training heats up



Saturday kicked off the first weekend of the Oklahoma State University Fire Service Training 30 firefighters, and some spectators,  gathered in Thunderbird Youth Academy's parking lot for the live burn portion of the Liquid Propane Gas class. During this free course firefighters learned how to recognize and respond to LPG emergencies without putting themselves in danger. Local firefighters from Pryor, Adair and Locust Grove worked along side Altus, Limestone, Tuttle, Jay and Oklahoma City in this training.  Downing Propane donated 600 gallons of propane for the course.  Training continues in two more weekends, May 4-5 and May 18-19. The firefighters work in groups to extinguish propane fires. Pictured below, Rudy Cryer, Mike Mike Duncan and Teddy Combs from OSU Fire Services were instructors for the class.
