Simulated fire training assists firefighters, EMTs

FENTON—Fenton and Lone Rock emergency responders used a fire simulated trailer for training on Fenton’s Main Street on Saturday, Aug. 15.

Cody Peterson, a Fenton EMT, said being volunteers and part of smaller fire departments and EMTs, this was an opportunity to tweak some techniques. “We need to practice, and it helps us prepare ourselves if that pager goes off,” he said. “If they call 911, they expect us to show up and be confident and competent at the same time. This is our opportunity to learn, tweak things and see what we can do better to ultimately serve the communities that we serve.”
