Each year the Waukee Fire Department spends one week training with the Iowa Fire Service Training Bureau's live fire simulator/burn trailer. The simulator allows firefighters to train for a variety of interior fire scenarios. This year, the Fire Department scheduled trainings October 8-12 at the Waukee Public Safety Building.

"The objective of this training is to train new recruits and seasoned veterans alike on the team dynamics, the use of hose streams and fire behavior while simulating a realistic emergency in a controlled environment," said Waukee Fire Chief Clint Robinson.
