Firefighters conduct training
Approximately a dozen volunteer firefighters from Wayne and Wisner spent most of their Saturday fighting fires.
However, the fires were intentionally set as a training exercise for the firefighters.
Trainers from Customized Firefighter Training in Milford, Iowa were in Wayne to conduct the training.
The trainers have conducted similar trainings in a five-state region and will be conducting a training at the annual Fire School to be held in Grand Island in May.
Saturday's training involved techniques on interior attack of a fire. The training trailer was set on fire, using dry hay to start a blaze, numerous times to allow firefighters the opportunity to practice their skills.
