Wednesday the Manchester Firemen were involved in survival course training exercises. After going through a few hours of class room work firemen were off to the survival course. Manchester firemen made their way to the former pool hall on the Hillsboro Blvd next to the First National Bank branch. Many people driving by and those living in the area may have thought the building was on fire but it was only man made smoke used for training exercises.
Manchester Fire Chief George DeShields told WMSR News that firemen Thursday through Saturday will be at house on Waite St doing bail outs and self-rescue from the second floor. Don’t be alarmed this is only training.
