Firefighter Training School in Longview

Firefighters from across the state are attending an annual skills school in Longview over the next few days.

Repelling and building is just one of the techniques taught at the 31st annual Northeast Texas Fire Protection School.

Today's training focused on saving our own, a scenario that deals with trapped or injured emergency workers and firefighters, reminiscent of 9-11.

Firefighters from numerous departments attend the intense training each year to add to their skills.
