The need for full time firefighters is high at the La Crosse Fire Department after a year of heavy turnover. The loss of several members of the department has left voids in certain shifts and the department is looking to recruits to step up and fill those holes. "Before we assign them to a shift and get them on some sort of 24 hour shift, we want to make sure they have the basic understanding of all the things they can run into on the street on a day to day basis," Division Chief Frank Devine, said. "That's where training scenarios come into play."
