VIDEO: With triple-digit temperatures popping up all around the Magic Valley, firefighters are being tested more than usual this summer. “Over the 22 years that I have been here I have seen it hot and dry, but this seems to be extraordinary,” said Twin Falls Fire Department Battalion Chief Mitchell Brooks. He also said the conditions are so extreme outside that his station has had to change its training schedule. Crews train early in the morning and finish by noon before it gets too hot. “Otherwise it’s just dangerous. Sometimes we will have to train at night just to get a training session in,” Brooks said.
