With the help of community partners, Northern Door fire departments are preparing for the worst when it comes to their training. On Saturday, members of the Sister Bay/Liberty Grove, Gibraltar, Ephraim, and Egg Harbor Fire Departments worked on their school bus and vehicle extrication skills thanks to Five Star Training out of Idaho. Since large-scale emergency situations do not happen every day, Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Chief Chris Hecht cannot thank the community and other departments enough for the support they give to make sure their volunteer force is as prepared as possible.
Hecht says one of their upcoming training sessions will take advantage of upgrades planned at Scandia Village where they can work on their patient movement skills and large-area search and rescue.
