Video: The Firefighters Of Tomorrow
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) –- Young people from across Minnesota got a chance to fight fire Saturday as a part of the Learning for Life program.
The program, together with the Minnesota Fire Exploring Association, is dedicated to teaching the firefighters of tomorrow how to help the people of their communities. The program gives young men and women, ages 14 – 21, the chance to team up and train with their local fire stations and get some hands on firefighting experience.
To get an idea of what that experience looks like, watch the video above, which was shot and edited by WCCO-TV photojournalist Dave Wertheimer.
