Local firefighters are putting their Urban Search and Rescue lessons to use during training exercises this week in East Chattanooga. During the three-day training period, which includes the Chattanooga Fire Department and several partner agencies, firefighters are learning "shoring" procedures to stabilize a structure after collapse so victims can be safely rescued.
