California Firefighters Train by Playing Dodgeball


Standard training took a twist for a California fire department, as seen in a video posted on Tuesday, March 28. Orland Fire Department’s firefighters played dodgeball as part of prep for their often-dangerous jobs.

The firefighters are seen wearing full gear as they toss balls and knock each other out of the game. The department wrote on Facebook the exercise teaches firefighters how to regulate their oxygen.

Video from firefighter Patrick Bennett gives an up-close view of the training exercise. Credit: FireVlog via Storyful
