Local fire departments are training together to ensure skill proficiency

Lansing and metro area fire departments are training together in an effort to ensure skill proficiency among the different fire departments.

The drills are to help mimic realistic scenarios in which the firemen will be put in, in hopes they will better prepare the fire departments for future fire calls.

Training includes three different drills on Friday and throughout the following week.

The different departments will be using the Happy's Inn motel, since there are plans to have the building demolished.
