For the first time in nine years, the Corvallis Fire Department conducted a controlled burn training exercise on a structure. About 25 firefighters and volunteer firefighters took part in the day-long training Monday. The training took place at a city-owned property located near Bald Hill Natural Area. They worked on a number of skills, like entering a structure, pump and hose operations and decontamination procedures after the job is done. Douglas Baily, the division chief with the department, told KEZI the training offered hands-on experience which will be valuable when they're out in the field in a real fire. "This is really an opportunity for them to broaden their skills,” Baily said.
