CLC course trains Pillager firefighters

12208358_424224554441300_1819475829915634831_nNineteen firefighters from the Pillager Area Fire Department participated in Central Lakes College’s Carbon Monoxide, Gas Meter and Propane Emergencies course this week.

The goal of the class was to familiarize firefighters with the hazards associated with carbon monoxide, propane emergencies, and to ensure they fully understand how their gas detection meters work.

“Pillager Fire did a phenomenal job during this training. We had a very productive classroom session and once we transitioned to the live fire training their skills showed as they handled the wind driven propane fires,” said Eric Makowski Budrow, Customized Training Representative and FIRE/EMS Program Manager at CLC.

Central Lakes College provided the training opportunity with a propane gas donation from Leaf River Ag.

“We have dealt with these types of emergencies before, so we need to keep our training up on flammable gasses,” said Randy Lee, Pillager Area Fire Department Fire Chief, “These operations also show us the capability of our equipment and crew.”
