While most people are aware that firefighters risk their lives on the job every day — battling burning buildings, wildland fires, and more — many do not think about the risks involved with getting to a scene in a timely manner. The fire engines are large vehicles that must maneuver through traffic safely and through all types of adverse weather conditions. A rare opportunity arrived last Sunday in the form of a large trailer worth close to a half a million dollars, featuring two state of the art emergency vehicle driving simulators. Inside the trailer, it is set up with a simulator on each end, and a workstation in the middle for the operators/instructor. South Boundary Fire Chief Tony Rohrwasser traveled to Pocatello to complete training on the use of the trailer.
