Firefighters prepare themselves physically and mentally before heading into an emergency. They put on their protective armor and spend hours practicing rescue techniques and setting up equipment.
But dealing with great losses that often come with fires and other emergencies, firefighters have to go through stress debriefing.
After a tough situation, they discuss how they handled the situation, what could have been done differently and mostly that what ever happened is not their fault.
Colby firefighters train at least twice a month to keep their skills sharp.
