Fire Department Community Training

The Fire Department is always conducting fire safety inspections for commercial buildings in Bellevue. On Monday, February 22 the Fire Department conducted an disaster drill at Bellin College. The drill involved the Fire Department employees aiding the nursing students in triaging and removing patients from the simulated hospital fire. This drill gave the nursing students an idea of what it is like out in the field and what their tasks maybe in a disaster at a hospital. Fire Department employees had the great opportunity to receive extra training to continuously improve their triage skills for a disaster.
