Some good hands-on learning for MSCTC Students wanting to be firefighters one day. The Moorhead Fire Department is training this week, practicing fighting propane gas fires, which can be among the most dangerous to fight.

Students from Moorhead's tech school who are studying to be firefighters are observing and learning from the experts.

Joe Gaughan – Moorhead Fire Department: “And if you do not have the proper application of water and tanks cooled before you shut off the fuel supply you could lose some firefighters but if done properly and successfully hopefully no one gets hurt.”

The MSCTC Firefighter school is a 1 year program. Nineteen students are enrolled this year.
