The City of Lubbock Fire Department completed one of their training exercises at the NWI research facilities at Reese the other day.
LFD are required to host quarterly field exercises focused on particular aspects of their training needs, and this one was focused on the theoretical scenario of rescuing a child who had climbed up a tall structure (in this case, the 200 m met tower), and who then got scared and couldn’t get down. The scenario adds that the elevator is broken, and so the LFD must get the child to ground safely by other methods.
All went smoothly (if a little dustily) and the training mission was completed to the usual high standards of Lubbock’s first responders. Thanks go to Rob Keinast, Division Chief, Battalion I, of the City of Lubbock Fire Department.
