You have heard the old saying, there’s going to be a hot time in the old town tonight, well that was very much true Saturday morning as members of the Pikeville/Pleasant Grove Fire Department begun their live burn training exercise in the town of Pikeville. The training was to allow some of their newer members the opportunity to get some hands-on training from other members of the department.
The hands-on training allows the members to learn the proper techniques in knowing their equipment and the correct way in using it on a fire scene. In a live burn, training using all natural materials gives firefighters a more in depth feeling of how fire actually works and progresses as the fire
increases in size.
