Springfield & Sherman Fire Departments Host SIUEM Fire Day
The 2nd Annual SIUEM Fire Day was held at the Sherman Fire Department April 6th 2017. Firefighters from the Springfield Fire Department Training Division instructed the residents and students on forced entry, confined space movements and the manipulation of equipment through a multistory training tower. Resident physicians presented topics on suspension syndrome, blast and crush injuries. The event allows our learners to better understand the environment and extremes that our patients and prehospital providers face when a structure fire occurs.
