Cal Fire Butte County prepares for fire season

Apr 17, 2015 8:24 PM

Fire season is ramping up earlier than scheduled. As seasonal workers join the ranks, they want to make sure they're ready for anything.

Cal Fire Butte County Fire Fighters spent the day getting real life training on how to battle a burning building. The donated home made it so that firefighters could practice interior attacks, vertical and horizontal ventilation, and searching for simulated victims.

This year seasonal workers were hired on earlier than expected in anticipation of a dry and potentially dangerous fire season. The training will be going on again tomorrow as volunteer firefighters will join the exercises.
