Firefighters Training Held In Longview

Firefighters from across the state, and the country, are attending an annual skills school in Longview. The training is taking place at the Northeast Texas Fire Protection School. One of the classes deals with trapped or injured emergency workers and firefighters.

Firefighters from numerous area volunteer departments, and even Canadian firefighters, attend the intense training to add to their skills.   "Texas has a really great reputation up north, a lot of very informative, a lot of hands-on training that we might not get back home," said Jaden Spencer, a firefighter from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The fire protection school will continue with intense training over the next two weekends.
