Firefighters train on Fort Benning Monday

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Firefighters on Fort Benning took part in a training course on Monday.

Station three firefighters were able to refresh their skills - as if they were responding to a real fire.

Captain Eric Webster says the firemen do this type of training at least once a quarter.

"We do live burns once a quarter and we respond like we would do a real house fire which is usually 3 engines," Webster said.

This group of firemen also received the large installation Department of Defense fire department of the year.

They competed against several other military installations and came out on top.
