Throughout the past two days, 10-15-14 and 10-16-14, the firefighters of Copperopolis Fire Protection District spent a few hours combining skill building and physical fitness together by practicing job related tasks and emergency incident activities.
Some skills included pulling hose, nozzle connections, raising ladders and pulling 145 pound dummies.
These skill building tasks allow firefighters to develop and enhance their skills as well as
determine their current level of conditioning in what, at times, can be
a very demanding vocation.
