Upwards of ten fire departments were in Clinton Saturday for a training exercise that encompassed a whole city block.
Interim Clinton Fire Chief Jason Karr explains the city block that will become a Mach One gas station was taken over for fire departments to conduct a variety of training exercises on the homes and former business locations.
President of the Mutual Aid Box Alarm System, or MABAS, Keith Hackle explains Saturday was a unique opportunity for everyone to train together and says they got some good training.
According to Chief Hackle, who is also the Fire Chief at Warrensburg Fire Department, everyone who came out Saturday had the chance to train.
The block of former homes and businesses is expected to be demolished with construction for the gas station to start by the summer months.
