Champaign Fire Department to Conduct Training

The Champaign Fire Department will be conducting hands-on training, June 15-17, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at the McDonald’s slated to be rebuilt at 1812 N. Neil St. Fire crews will focus on firefighter rescue techniques utilizing theatrical smoke to obscure their vision and create conditions similar to what may be experienced in an actual firefighter rescue.

Crews will rotate through skills stations in either the morning or afternoon session. Each crew will have an opportunity to rotate through each session lasting 40 minutes.
