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.
