The Lexington Fire Department presented a class for its firefighters and other regional first responders in Structural Collapse Training (SCT). This class was an 80-hour course designed to teach responders how to handle situations that may arise during disasters such as tornadoes, earthquakes or terrorist attacks.
Sponsorship for the training came from a Federal Homeland Security grant. Monday was the last day of hands-on training with an exercise designed to use all the skills they learned during the class.
