Storm Lake and Area Fire Departments Using Simulator Training Program

The Storm Lake Fire Department is hosting the State Fire Service Training Bureau’s interior fire attack simulator.

Chief Glenn Schlesser and the Storm Lake Department did their training last (Tues) night…

The simulator unit provides flames and smoke in different challenging settings, which Schlesser says is about as close as can be expected in a controlled environment…

The Alta Fire Department also trained with the simulator this week, and the Sioux Rapids-Rembrandt Department will train tomorrow (Thur). All departments in Buena Vista County and the surrounding area have been contacted if they want to set up a training time.

Schlesser says there continues to be a need for volunteer firefighters in Storm Lake. Contact the department if interested.
