Quincy fire department trains on rescue mission scenario

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Quincy firefighters continued their month long training Friday night with a rescue scenario.

Firefighters used a vacant warehouse on Quincy's north side to simulate trying to locate a victim in a smoke filled building, using a rope to help them find their way.

While there wasn't any smoke, firefighters used a completely pitch black room to help make the simulation more realistic.

"We train for the worst and hope for the best. Again we have to get a little bit creative sometimes to come up with the situation to prepare ourselves and this is just another attempt to try and take care of the what ifs," said Firefighter, Michael Dade.

Dade says this was the last of nine trainings for the fire department this month.
