Just Practice

Green Valley Fire District firefighters took advantage of the impending razing of the American Southwest Credit Union in the Big Lots/Ross plaza to get in some training.  Operations Chief Joey Kosiorowski said Cole Valley Partners and Culver’s agreed to allow firefighters to practice wall breaching and vertical ventilation, Culver’s restaurant and Dutch Bros. Coffee will go up on the property next year.  Engineer Randy Creighton, Capt. Jason Moore and Firefighter Brittany McKinney work on vertical ventilation.




McKinney practices navigating rooms filled with theatrical smoke.  “The real-life practice is invaluable and we are glad that the developer aloowed us a spot to train,” Kosiorowski said.
