The Iowa City Fire Department responds to nearly 5,000 emergency calls each year. To prepare for these situations, the fire department completes simulation trainings, designed to enhance technical response ability. Firefighters move through a series of replicated disaster scenarios; some of which require firefighters to move, break, and breach large structures and debris.
