Tight squeeze

Published 12:01 pm Wednesday, September 8, 2010

Vicksburg Fire Department Lt. Adam Boren tries to avoid running over traffic cones as he goes through a drill for backing up the fire truck Tuesday in the parking lot of Vicksburg Cycles. All firefighters participate in random drills monthly. The firefighter who does the best gets his name on a plaque in the training center. Other drills include high-rise firefighting, a window rescue, dressing for a fire and replacing a burst hose line. Boren has been with the department for about seven years.
