Hot Training

Members of the St. Clair and Richwoods fire protection districts went through propane fire training Wednesday night in the parking lot across East Springfield Road from St. Clair First Baptist Church. Crews learned how properly to battle propane tank and similar types of fires by practicing techniques several times. The training was funded by the Missouri Emergency Response Commission in conjunction with local emergency training specialists and Three Rivers College. The Missouri Propane Gas Association also assisted. The training lasted about 2 1/2 hours.
