Search and rescue was the focus of Thursday night’s Citizens Fire Academy course. Class members went through the same procedures as firefighters.“I loved it,” said class member Rachel Hiner. “I learned an 8-year-old is a lot heavier than I thought they were, and it’s hard for firefighters to see in the dark.”Hiner and fellow class member Merissa Chapman teamed up to search a dark room for anyone in need of rescue, while other class members watched via a thermal imaging camera.
