Members of Newton Fire Department recently completed a 6-week training initiative going over the fundamentals of Technical Rescue. This program, funded via an AFG Training Grant, brought in "National Rescue Consultants", an expert firefighter training company from Florida. The instructors, who are all on FEMA USAR teams, taught our members different techniques, tips, and tricks for technical rescue. In this photograph, we see Newton Firefighters learning the principles of shoring and stabilizing a building.
