Belgian Firefighters Visiting Reno This Week

Posted: Updated:

Firefighters from Belgium are visiting Reno this week to learn about improving their skills.

"The fact that you can come from different stations to the same incident is something that we can learn from. We can of course share how things are done, sometimes the same, sometimes differently," says Batt. Chief Paul Vanlook of Gavere, Belgium.

Because of recent large wildfires and disasters like the Reno Air Races crash -- the chief of the Belgian Fire Department asked if firefighters could come here and study how the Reno firefighters responds to fires, accidents and medical emergencies.

Reno is one of only two cities in the U.S. selected for the Belgian tour.
