Minot: Training Firefighters in Fitness
Minot's Fire Department is working with Trinity Sports Medicine among other emergency responders to construct a way the city can handle a mass casualty event, especially through sports medicine.
Often the police or fire departments responding to the call don't know Trinity's physicians are already at the sporting event.
To help clarify each party's link of communication and increase response time, they met at the Fire Administration building to discuss future plans.
(Robyn Gust, Trinity Sports Medicine) "What we are doing here today, and this has come about through meeting with community ambulance, with fire and rescue, with dispatch, with all the emergency responders in Ward County, that we are trying to bridge that gap on wasted time. Between the time that that person is injured, or multiple people with mass casualty and the time that they are on their way to the hospital."

Devils Lake Fire Dept. does Ice Bucket Challenge with fire truck
Nominated by Mercy Hospital, Wednesday, after their outdoor training drills, a fire truck drenched these firefighters with a huge bucket-full of ice cold H20.
Luckily they were good sports when Alvin Schroeder pulled that handle to release tons of fire truck water on them. What a sight it was to see. Watch the video now on ‘Devils Lake Journal’ Facebook page.
Fire Chief Jim Moe and his DLFD firemen made today's front page. Good job guys!
