Residents experience what it takes to be a firefighter

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) --  Residents got to experience what it's like to be a firefighter Tuesday night.


The Quincy Fire Department's Citizens Fire Academy took part in a burn house training exercise.  Students in the class got to suit up in full fire gear and watch as firefighters put out a fire in a stack of wooded pallets.

The 12-week class lets civilians experience the career of a firefighter.  Students learn everything from CPR to search and rescue.  WGEM's Kaylee Pfieferling is part of this class.  

If you're interested in the next course call the fire department.
