The weekend was hot as firefighters from across Lyon County gathered in Emporia to train with the Kansas State Firefighters Association.

Training for the firefighters consisted of classes in the morning including lessons on interior firefighting, farm extrication, search and rescue. Later on, they performed live-fire exercises with one that helped teach the firefighters how to put out a vehicle fire and another on the second day to learn about interior fire evolutions.

President of the KSFFA Kevin Flory states why these exercises are so vital for rural firefighters.

Emporia Fire Battalion Chief Jesse Taylor explains the benefits of training alongside firefighters from surrounding communities.
