Firefighter Training


The firefighters discuss different tactics and how building construction features could affect their operations.


Many of the firefighters had not had the opportunity to work on this type of building before.

The firefighters definitely gave us a head start on demolition!

In September of 2016, the Downers Grove Fire Department sent approximately 60 firefighters and officers over a three-day period to conduct vertical ventilation evolutions at our property at 5100 Forest Avenue in Downers Grove, IL. Dan Tasso, Training & Safety Battalion Chief, thanked us for giving them the opportunity to conduct the training and shared some great photos with us.
