Colorado Firefighters Hold High-Rise Drill at Hospital


Firefighters from three departments gather for training




COLORADO SPRINGS (KOAA) – If you saw a lot of emergency vehicles in the area of St. Francis Medical Center on Sunday, it wasn’t an actual emergency. The hospital teamed up with firefighters from Colorado Springs, Black Forest, and Falcon Fire Departments to hold a realistic high-rise training drill. | Continuous News | Colorado Springs and Pueblo

Because there aren’t very many high-rise buildings here in Colorado Springs, fire agencies typically use hospitals like this one for practice. These drills happen once a year to keep firefighters prepared in case of a real-life emergency.
