Sheridan Fire-Rescue conducted roof ventilation training at the former Big Horn Motors building at 5th and Main Streets Tuesday. Firefighters have been conducting various training evolutions since last week, including interior victim searches, firefighter self-rescue, and wall breeches. The training was made possible by building owner Dave Sorensen.
Representatives from Sheridan Fire-Rescue, Big Horn Fire, Ranchester Fire and Dayton Fire participated in instructor training in the use of the Fireblast 451 ® Mobile Fire Training trailer on Thursday. Trainers from Fireblast 451 ®, the manufacturer of the unit, certified 11 “Fire Control Officers” to conduct live fire training evolutions.
Thanks to a $200,000 Safe Routes to School project grant, construction of sidewalks and crosswalks near the Big Horn School campus when completed will provide for safer walks to the new Big Horn Elementary School when it is completed. At present the new school appears to be "reaching for the skies" as it emerges from the ground.
