Firefighter Recruits Dealing With Heat
LAS VEGAS — Recruits are having to deal with 120 degree temperatures while training on Tropicana. About thirty
recruits are in a 22 week training program. They are training right across from the Orleans casino.
Recruits had to wear full jackets and deal with all the equipment that comes a long with it. The temperature at the base of the tower where they were training topped 140 degrees.
The training is scheduled to end in late August.
