The Spring Grove Fire Department hosted a joint exercise with the Mabel Fire Department on Monday, April 10, in Spring Grove.

The departments reviewed LP (liquid propane) fire safety protocol and fire suppression.

A special propane tank was part of their joint training, which allowed members to brush up their skills on fighting such a fire and building up cross-department communication.

Firefighters used self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) to fight the practice fire. The group on the left is getting directions from their instructor while the next group lines up for their turn.

Richard Gulbranson of Severson Oil Company assisted the departments by providing the LP for the exercise.
