South Bend Fire Department celebrates major milestone
The South Bend Fire Department celebrated another milestone.
The Indiana Army National Guard and South Bend firefighters took part in Humanitarian Assistance Response Training which allows units to work side-by-side and share valuable assets in the event of a state or national emergency.
HART offers participants realistic scenarios and existing plans creating a joint task force response to a major disaster.
According to a tweet from the department, Aquatic Rescue Teams will be deployed in the event of such an emergency.
Another first milestone for SBFD. Firefighters and Soldiers training together for future HART scenarios.
