Firefighters from the Green Township (OH) Fire Department firefighters participated in weekend training exercises in the Ohio Fire Academy’s Mobile Search and Rescue Lab, according to a report from the Chillicothe Gazette.
The report indicates that the mobile lab is configured like a two level home. The first level as a condensed house which includes a living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. The second level is connected by a stairway and contains an obstacle maze configured to teach maneuvering through tight spaces.
The $78,000 mobile lab was acquired by the academy about a year ago and has been taken to approximately six sites, according to the report.
