The Ruston Fire Department in Partnership with the Bates Technical College Fire Training will be conducting a live fire training exercise at 5212 North Shirley. The proposed burn date is Saturday the 19th of February 2011. The exercise will commence at approximately 8:30 a.m. and will conclude at approximately 5 pm.  This type of live fire training is an invaluable tool for fire service personnel.  We will be conducting a series of small burns for the first few hours with a final burn in the early afternoon.

It is recommended that individuals with respiratory problems stay indoors with doors and windows closed.  We request that vehicles moved out of the immediate area as access will be limited on the 19th

Crews will be preparing the building as early as Thursday the 16th of February.

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact my office at Pat Piper  at (253) 680-7463 or Chief Don Torbet at (253) 381-1887.  An area for public observation will be made available to watch the exercise.
