Firemen Help Out In Reno County

The City of Clearwater Volunteer Fire Department assisted with the recent grass fires in Reno County. Six firemen and one vehicle responded to a call for assistance from Reno County and State Officials. The firefighters worked 12 hour shifts in fighting the fires that ultimately destroyed 10 homes and burned more than 5000 acres of grass land in the sand hills north of Hutchinson and injured two people.

The firemen: Lt Chad Sterrett and Firefighters Kolby Lauterbach, Trent Zimmerman, Jason Hecker, Josh Templin, and Matt Gibson were assigned to a company that was responsible for helping to extinguish grass fires in the area and search and rescue activities. 

The officers received valuable insight in dealing with large scale fires as well as being able to learn alternate techniques to fighting grass fires and evaluate apparatus that other fire companies use in fighting wildfires.
