Palatine, Rolling Meadows officials suit up for fire fighting training
Several elected and appointed officials took part in a Fire Ops 101 training session Friday under the guidance of firefighters from the Palatine, Palatine Rural and Rolling Meadows fire departments.
They headed to the former Camelot School property in Palatine for the hands-on fire fighting and rescue operations workshop, which started with them suiting up in the proper protective equipment. The vacant buildings once used by a school for troubled youth now are used for fire training.
Officials learned how to use a self-contained breathing apparatus, battle a live fire, conduct victim searches, advance a charged hose line, raise ladders and ventilate smoke from the building.
The three fire departments, which regularly train together, put on the workshop to give officials a better understanding of the work they do.
