Friefighters Prepare For High Rise Fires

Firefighters are taking steps to be prepared in the event of a another high-rise fire. After six high-rise fires in the last six months, Bay County and Panama City Beach firefighters decided to hold joint training exercises. The first exercises took place yesterday at Treasure Island Condominiums as firefighters ran up 22 flights of stairs with their gear on. Bay County Fire Captain Gabriel Moschella tells the “News Herald” the goal is to commit their actions to muscle memory so there won’t be any hesitation when faced with the real thing.
