The Western Youth Fire Fighter Training Program runs into it's second year. In a joint program between the Onalaska Fire Department and Western Technical College, high school students from around the Coulee Region got hands on training Saturday morning. A class of 13 students spent time getting familiar with firefighting equipment. Western Technical College Instructor Rick Molzahn said the class exposes the students to a potential career path. "Today is a lot of the hands on they are getting in the burn room we have live fire so they are able to experience the heat and see the smoke," Molzahn said.
