Firefighter Training To Continue On EIU Campus


The Charleston Fire Department will continue to use a small section of Eastern Illinois University campus for firefighter training next week.

No fire or smoke will be used in the training, but fire trucks will be in the vicinity, according to Charleston Fire Chief Pat Goodwin. Firefighters will participate in roof and hose exercises from 7 a.m.-noon Sunday and 1-4 p.m. Monday and Tuesday (June 8, 9 and 10).

The building used for the exercises is located about one block south of Lincoln Avenue on Ninth Street. The training sessions are another in a series of collaborative exercises over the years between the university and community emergency responders.
