Hays Firefighters Practice Building Collapse Rescue

As part of the Northwest Kansas Technical Rescue Team, the Hays Fire Department is undergoing advanced training this week in building collapse rescue procedures.

Captain Justin Killian says it helps the firefighters be better prepared for any emergency.  “This course also includes rescue from confined spaces, high angles and trench cave-ins, ” he says.

The three-day program, which started Tuesday in the classroom, is taught by the University of Kansas Fire and Rescue Training Institute.

The hands-on training has been at the Hays Waffle-Crete production facility.
