Alpine Township Firefighters Get more live training

It isn't every week that firefighters get the opportunity for training with real fires, but this Saturday offered the second chance to experience such within a month.  An abandoned home on the west side of Alpine just east of Lamoreaux had been scheduled for demolition and the owners had given the Township the opportunity to burn it down.  A home adjacent to this property had been burned down a few weeks ago.

Firefighters took advantage of the opportunity and conducted some live training exercises inside the home until it came time to to burn the structure to the ground.  Those witnessing the exercises received a much better understanding of how a fire department operates and of the dedication and hard work of firefighters.
