Fire training a valuable resource for Department of Public Safety officers

Rockford’s combined law enforcement, Department of Public Services and fire protection were given a rare chance to practice their skills Saturday, July 20. During a morning practice burn, paid on call and full time safety officers from Rockford as well as firefighters from Algoma, Cedar Springs and Cannon Township were able to enter the burning home and put out fires inside the residence.

The home, located on the east side of Northland Drive between 11 and 12 mile roads was slated for demolition and the homeowner had asked local fire departments to burn the building. The Squire ran an article about the process of practice burning a property but later in the week these pictures came in and are too spectacular not to share. Our thanks to the photographer for taking them and getting them to us.
