EMS/fire training


June 28, 2018

Members of the Haines Volunteer Fire Department hit wood 50 times in the "ax to grind" portion of the firefighter olympics, a seven-part race to test and improve firefighters' skills. The olympics are meant to be fun, challenging and build teamwork, said fire chief Al Giddings. Firefighters will repeat the course weekly to improve their skills and speed.
