LADD — Firefighters from eastern and northern Bureau County communities continue to work together to become more and more prepared.

This weekend, firefighters from several departments were inside the Ladd fire station, navigating an obstacle course and learning how to use air tanks and proper emergency procedures associated with the equipment.

The training is part of the Northern Bureau County Firefighting Training Association which works with the Ladd, DePue, Cherry, Arlington, Spring Valley, Malden, LaMoille and Seatonville fire departments on the third Saturday every other month to work on needed rescue and fire fighting skills. The departments also help each other in real-life situations via various mutual aid agreements.

The heads of the department will meet regularly to discuss the skills they feel the firefighters need to learn. The stations take turns hosting the four-hour training events, and Princeton’s fire department supplies instructors for the day.

Seatonville and DePue recently joined the organization in January.

The next training will be March 16 in Malden.
