Hays firefighters will train at park Saturday morning
City of Hays firefighters will conduct pump operation and fire stream training Saturday at Hays Municipal Park.
The training will result in the 100 block of Main Street being obstructed from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. Barricades will be in place, and motorists are asked to detour around this area.
The City of Hays Fire Department has reduced pump operations and fire streams training by 50 percent due to the ongoing drought and water warning condition. The training is in compliance with that reduction. Additionally, the training is done in public parks in order to use the water more effectively for both firefighter training and park grass irrigation.
