Bus Extrication Training At LKQ

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-The harsh weather didn't stop firefighters from working outside and learning new things.

Fire Chief Forrest Walter from Mission Township Fire Department says several fire departments like the 190th, Auburn and the Mission Township held a joint training day for bus extrication at the LKQ lot.

Fire Chief Walter says firefighters learned stabilizing and cribbing a bus and also how to help those needing to be rescued in times of chaos.

Chief Walter says the real life situations like the school bus scenario used in Saturday's training are more beneficial than watching a video.
