The Abilene fire dept. joined the Texas Engineering Extension Service to train volunteer firefighters from the Big Country. 

They were put in several real-life scenarios-from burning cars to buildings. 

Fewer volunteers are signing up around the state and that makes training even more crucial.

The training facility in Abilene is the closest one to many around the area, so they depend on this annual training to be prepared for the read deal.
