Although frequently people only think about firefighters when they are needed, they are always on duty.
A 24-hour-shift may bring them no calls for service or many depending on the day, but what they can be sure to be doing is training.
Yesterday firefighters worked at Station #1 on search and rescue training, as well as ladder use, according to a twitter post from @saultfireservices.

Firefighters were seen bringing a training dummy through the window and down the ladder of a smoke-filled environment.
In order to keep their National Fire Protection Association firefighter certification, numerous hours of training are required each year.
