Firemen Hit The Books

They normally charge into burning buildings, but Saturday, they were in the classrooms.

The 5th Annual Pitt County Fire College is taking place this weekend at Pitt Community College and its making our firemen better at saving lives. There were a number of classes, including a class on what to do with farm equipment emergencies. Even other counties in North Carolina were getting in on this life saving information, like Lenoir, Beaufort, Martin and Greene counties.

The Fire College is also offering EMS classes this year, a first for the college. The college is put on by the Pitt County Fireman's Association and Pitt Community College.
