Firefighters play dodgeball for training drill

Marshall Volunteer Fire department (Marshall, WI) posted this video of their drill night. According to their Facebook page “We are always looking for ways to improve our monthly drills.”

As a fitness enthusiast, I have to say this is a great idea for a drill. Playing dodgeball involves using many muscles groups and gets the heart rate up. Being in full gear and on air makes it harder. A game like this would be analogous to the physical stress of a fire scene. So the people playing are learning valuable lessons about physical ability and air consumption when on a fire scene.
