The Faison Fire & Rescue hosted a Firefighter Certification Rescue class last weekend. The program brought together firefighters from Faison, Oak Wolfe, Pleasant Grove, Pricetown, Seven Springs, Spivey’s Corner and Number 7 Township.

“The class was a great experience for new and seasoned firefighters to work on technical skills of our job,” said Chief Lee Kennedy, Faison Fire & Rescue. “The participation from other departments helps focus on working together and knowing how everyone’s tools operate. Also, we were able to show the use of our new Edraulic battery-operated extrication tools.”

The special tool mentioned enables rescuers to help victims as it requires no hoses and no power unit.
