Trailer makes training realistic
The 240-square foot trailer, which will replace a smoke cubes as the primary safety device, is designed to resemble a real home complete with living room/kitchen area and bedroom.
“We want to stress (the kids) out a little bit and show them the right things to do because in a real fire, they will be stressed,” RFD Chief James Tornabene said.
“This makes it as realistic as possible so they know how to react in a real situation.”
Tornabene said the amount of smoke that will fill the back bedroom is akin to being in a car on a foggy morning, enough to get disoriented.
