  • Annual Event Gives Glimpse of the Everyday Challenges Firefighters Face

    Members of media and government got a first hand taste of the difficult work of fire fighters do everyday.

    Fire Ops 101 was developed to educate decision makers about the profession of fire fighting. The annual event features four unique emergency scenarios that participants suit up and respond to.

    St. John’s Mayor Danny Breen was joined by Liberal MHA Bernard Davis as they worked on a vehicle extrication with the jaws of life.

    Secretary of the St. John’s Fire Fighters Association, Jim O’Toole says, Premier Dwight Ball was out through two stations of the course early this morning. He says Ball fought his way through the confined spaces training exercise with flying colours.

    O’Toole says the Premier seems to have a new found appreciation for the work of first responders when he emerged from the exercise.
