YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Cadets in the Youngstown Fire School learned how to get out of a dangerous situation on Friday.
The school teaches students how to rescue people from emergencies. On Friday, they learned how to save themselves by propelling from an upstairs window.
The leader of the school says while students are learning the skills, he hopes they never have to use them.
“Fire is an always changing, unpredictable force. A fire can go from very small to very large in a hurry,” said Youngstown Fire Department Battalion Chief John Lightly.
The Youngstown Fire School is an eight-week course that runs in the spring.
