Westfield Firefighters Learn to Survive

Westfield firefighters have been hard at work the past two months–they’ve been training on how to survive if the unthinkable happens.  The 25-hour fire ground survival program, developed by the International Association of Fire Fighters, teaches firefighters how to escape if they get lost or trapped in life threatening fires.
