Ft. Benning soldiers, CPD & CFD team up for Urban Search and Rescue Training

FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) -

Fort Benning soldiers teamed up with Columbus police and fire fighters Thursday to train on how to react during crisis situations.

It's called Urban Search and Rescue.

We spoke with participants taking part in the training, and they explained why it is important for both soldiers and our local responders.

They were training on a simulated parking garage collapse, which involves rescuing victims who are trapped in confined spaces.
