Training for emergencies is an integral part of public safety, and firefighters spent Tuesday morning preparing for the worst that could happen. The Casa Grande Fire Department’s confined space rescue team conducted the training at Salt River Project’s Desert Basin Generating Station on Burris Road. CGFD Battalion Chief Frank Ricci said the training is important to allow firefighters an opportunity to see first hand how to conduct a rescue in a tight space, whether it be at SRP or elsewhere in the city or county. Fourteen firefighters are part of the technical team, and all are assigned to Station 502, which is on Ninth Street near Lowe’s. Should a call come in and firefighters need to be deployed, Ricci said the unit is dispatched. Other team members would respond as needed, he said.
