Firefighters Hang Around Palmer Arena…Literally!

This week’s hot weather failed to deter Danville Firefighters from doing some rope training.  They have been hanging around the David S. Palmer Arena – literally!

Acting Fire Chief Don McMasters says firefighters have been practicing on ropes off a catwalk near the Arena’s ceiling….

McMasters noted firefighters never know when they might need those skills….

And Acting Chief McMasters says the Palmer Arena provides a great place to train….

Firefighter Lowell Hudson makes his way down to the floor of the Palmer Arena.


The rope training is just part of the intense training which Danville Firefighters undergo.
