Sarasota, FL - Suncoast Fire Academy Class #135 recently trained with live car fires as Firefighter I comes to an end. The recruits worked two live fire evolutions, including a car fire evolution and a burn building evolution. For obvious reasons these two days are normally the highlight of the Fire I program. After weeks of preparation and learning about fire, and fire behavior, they get to apply their knowledge. Pictured are the recruits receiving a safety briefing before the live fire evolution.
