ANAHEIM, CA - (March 15, 2011) - The City of Anaheim Fire Department will continue its live fire training exercises in the Central Anaheim area, which began on Saturday, March 12 and will conclude on Sunday, March 20.  Firefighters in full gear and with vehicles will practice several drills, including rooftop exercises and controlled live structure burns.

The training exercises will take place at buildings at 118 W. Elm St., and 425 S. Anaheim Blvd.  Both buildings are vacant and are due for demolition the week of March 21.  Neighborhoods in the vicinity may see an increased presence of fire vehicles and fire personnel. 

Fire personnel will perform forcible entry techniques as well as vertical ventilation on the rooftops of these structures.  Power tools and equipment will be used along with fire apparatus.

This training is of vital importance to the personnel of the Fire Department, so firefighters can continue to perform their duties to protect life and property.
