Longview Street Closed For Fire Training

Traffic came to a stand still at a Longview intersection Sunday, but for an important piece of training for area firefighters.  The Green Street railroad underpass was closed off as firefighters trained on emergency structural shoring.  It's a drill where firefighters had to stabilize a damaged structure and prevent it from collapsing.  The drill was done in real time by members of the Urban Search and Rescue School.

For members of the school, it was a chance to put simulation into practice, knowing that time could save lives.  Training for the school will continue until Friday.
