Training to battle flames
Things were heating up last week at the Lincoln Parish Fire Training Center as seven rookies were training to join the ranks of the Lincoln Parish volunteer firefighters.
Two other volunteers were training from the Grambling and Bernice departments.
So far recruits have learned how to use their protective equipment and put it on quickly. Lincoln Parish Fire Chief Dennis Ford said the National Fire Protection Association requires that firefighters be able to put on their protective gear in two minutes or less.
