Area fire departments rehearse rescues with new life-saving tools

Local firefighters trained together Tuesday evening to test out new life-saving equipment from the Baileys Harbor Fire Department that they hope they never have to use.  Gibraltar, Baileys Harbor, and Ephraim Fire Departments honed their skills while collectively simulating the stabilization of a vehicle while safely removing passengers.  Gibraltar Fire Chief Andy Bertges says all three departments will go out on any major fire or rescue calls together.  He says the challenge is to secure vehicles and prevent airbags from deploying while extricating any victims from a crash.



The Mid-Door County training events are done on a monthly basis by the three fire departments.  Bertges adds that more volunteers are needed for local fire departments in northern Door County.
