Firefighters Get Special Training 
( Air Date: 8/13/2004 ) 
Riley firefighters spent late Thursday afternoon and evening battling blazes, 
but thankfully no homes or businesses were involved.

The fire crews were conducting training exercises in a special trailer on loan 
from a neighboring fire station.

Honey Creek Fire Department secured a federal grant to purchase the trailer, 
and part of the grant proposal was using it to help train other departments in 
the county.

The trailer uses propane gas to ignite blazes in makeshift rooms of a house.

This gives firefighters a real-life grasp of what they`ll face in an actual 
inferno.
