Live fire training exercise set for Sisters

The Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District plans to hold a "Burn to Learn" training exercise on Saturday, January 5 and Sunday, January 6 at the corner of Jefferson and Larch in Sisters.

"This exercise will provide invaluable training to our firefighters using live fire," said Deputy Fire Chief Tim Craig.

District firefighters will be practicing search and rescue skills along with fire attack, ventilation and exposure protection activities.

"We wish to thank the community in advance for their support in this training exercise," Craig said. "Without you we could not achieve the high quality of training that this event will bring. Smoke from the burn will be kept to a minimum when possible, but we ask that area residents keep their windows closed during the exercise. "

Fire personnel and apparatus will remain on scene throughout the evening to monitor any continued burning and all fire will be extinguished by Monday, January seven, the fire district reported.

There will be activity on the property leading up to the live fire date and fire personnel will be on and off the site throughout that time for training and preparation.

"Safety and control are the primary concerns at this training," Craig said. "Extra equipment and trained personnel are on scene at all times."
