Sioux Falls Firefighters In Training [VIDEO]

If you drove by Augustana College in Thursday, you’re probably wondering why all the fire trucks and emergency vehicles were stationed there.  There was no fire.  This was an intense fire training exercise at Granskou Hall.

I had the opportunity to enter a smoke filled room on the 6th floor with Rick Tupper, Augustana College Security Director.  Check out the video with Rick.  In just seconds, I was disoriented and confused…unable to know what to do.  My mind was on panic mode.’   Imagine if this was indeed a real fire!

What I experienced in this simulation exercise is what our firefighters encounter every time they enter a smoke filled room.  It is literally a matter of life and death!

No doubt about it!  Our firefighters are among the best in the country!   Their intense training at Augustana College is indicative of the dangers a firefighter faces.
