Floyd County Firefighters Sharpen Driving Skills


About a dozen firefighters from various departments in Floyd County spent yesterday training at Betsy Layne High School.

It was not the training you typically think about firefighters going through, this one was a driving course required by the state.

Participants drove through an obstacle course simulating different situations.

The course focused on driving personal vehicles since the departments are volunteer.

Officials say many firefighters respond to calls in their own vehicles.
