What skills are needed to be a fire fighter? What kind of training do you go through to work inside a burning building? What kind of technology is available to help you? Join us from the Eureka Fire Training Center in Pacific, Missouri for this exciting program about how fire fighters train to fight fires. See the latest advances in thermal imaging technology. Learn what it takes to work inside a burning and smoke-filled building. Tour a fire truck and find out how they are designed from the ground up for the specific fire district that is buying it. The program includes excerpts from both live and pre-taped training sessions, a live tour of a fire truck, and, of course, questions and comments from students.  For other videos like this, search using the keyword “Fire Safety.”
