DEVILS LAKE (WDAZ-TV) - Firefighters got some hands-on training in Devils Lake on Wednesday evening.

What looked like a regular trailer in the firehouse parking lot turned out to be a great spot for some training.

Firefighters got a chance to practice crawling through small windows and saving a downed firefighter from a tight space.

The Fired Department borrowed the trailer from the Bismarck Fire Department for a few weeks.

It's for in-depth training they might not be able to do otherwise.

It also allows firefighters to get familiar with situations they might encounter the next time they are called out.

The trailer makes it easier for the department to train. It can be set up right in the parking lot and it allows each firefighter to get the hands-on training they need.
