RUSSELLVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Russellville firefighters do everything they can to keep their neighbors safe. In order for this to happen they have constant training.
This week, the firefighters had a special training drill with extra help.

Russellville Mayor David Grissom and his council members joined the firefighters. They suited up in turnout gear to get a first-hand look at what firefighters do. The training took place at Station 1 in Russellville.

Firefighters hope these experiences will better help elected leaders know what they face every time the fire alarm goes off and they go to work.
“A hot experience, I would say. It’s great to see how things work and how they handle a fire,” said Mayor Grissom.
