The training was led by Byron Willems with Craig Fire & Safety – Colorado Team Holmatro. Twelve vehicles were set up at the Kremmling Fire Department to emulate different scenarios that firefighters might encounter. Members of the departments got to use extrication tools to learn new skills and practice techniques.
