LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – Where there’s smoke, there’s training. It was a training session on dealing with smoke on Wednesday morning for firefighters with the La Follette Fire Department.
LFD Chief Jimmy Pack explains that LFD Training Officer Joey Gilbert had all LFD veteran firefighters and the rookies team up during the smoke training. “Each shift will then go back and evaluate their performances,” said Pack.
New firefighter training will be conducted at the Hollingsworth house for the next several weeks.
“The smoke we’re using during all this training is EPA approved and is non-toxic. It’s environmentally friendly,” added the Chief. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 09/29/2022-6AM)
