Just another ordinary day?
The Staples Fire Department held a training session on June 2. Firefighters staged a roof rescue at Centennial Auditorium, 45 feet above the ground, using the basket lift.
Once the basket was safely lowered to the ground firefighters tended to unsecuring the patient (Cole Yungbauer) and the rescue was completed. The training exercises culminated several weeks of training at the fire hall learning the ropes and pulleys and handling the equipment. Firefighters remained at the scene until after dark.
