LCC Fire School

Parsons Sun – June 4, 2018

Rick Mosher of the Olathe Fire Department, an instructor with the FOOLS of Oz, a firefighter training organization, talks fire response Friday afternoon with Labette Fire District No. 9 firefighters Brandon Merz and Cody Robinson and Parsons firefighter Quentin Myers. This week’s Labette Community College fire school has brought together firefighters from across Kansas. Firefighters learned in classrooms and hands-on through demonstrations of fire rescue, ventilation and other techniques in Parsons and at a home in rural Parsons owned by Neosho Valley Feeders. The fire school is growing, according to Linseh Johnson, LCC’s director of Workforce Education and Community Services. Last year’s school brought 77 firefighters and this year’s school has 130 firefighters.

Becky LeRoy and Todd Carter of the Northwest Fire District in Franklin County spent time on a driving simulator Friday in the parking lot at LCC. The simulator can create driving conditions for all kinds of weather, according to instructor Mike Cook of the Kansas University Fire and Rescue Training Institute.

Larned firefighter Antonio Hearn pulls a dummy through a window during fire rescue practice Friday as Emporia firefighter Matthew Knobloch (inside the building) helps.
