St. Edward students experience fire/rescue training

Interested junior students at St. Edward High School were invited to join the St. Edward Fire Department one day last week for some hands-on experience in fire and rescue work.
They learned from rescue squad members how to secure a patient on the cot and load them into the ambulance.
They also donned full fire fighter gear and, with the supervision of fire fighters, practiced with the department’s extrication tools.
