Henderson Firefighters participate in survival training

HENDERSON, KY (WFIE) -

Henderson Firefighters spent Friday training how to save one of their own.

The method they use, Denver Drill, was born out of a tragedy on Denver's Fire Department. A 16 year veteran died after being separated from his partner.

Rescuers practices coming up against a number of hazards and debris, equipment in the room, and a floor collapse.

Through the training, they also now teach firemen how to self-rescue.

Firefighters participate in the survival sessions regularly.
