Oklahoma City firefighters at Station 8 are specially trained to handle collapses, whether the cause is an earthquake or a tornado.

They have listening devices to locate victims, special cameras to see inside rubble, massive 90-pound jack hammers and concrete chainsaws to cut through building debris and much more.

Much of this equipment was used to find people in Briarwood and Plaza Towers Elementary in the May 2013 tornadoes.
