Firefighters rescued five victims in Lexington Friday at a much touted school that draws crews from across the country for classes and practices.
Friday’s schedule included a ladder ops class at the Old Frankfort Pike training center. Lexington fire Capt. Arthur Ashley led in teaching ladder truck rescues, methods for searching for victims, ventilation techniques, forcible entry and other skills. Twenty-two instructors taught the 40 firefighters in the class.
Other classes were held throughout Lexington. The school started Tuesday and runs through Sunday.
