Madison firefighters train at Kohl Center for rescues

Training happened on UW campus

Madison firefighters took to the roof of the Kohl Center on the University of Wisconsin campus on Monday for heavy urban rescue training.

Team members set up realistic scenarios at the arena, including trench collapse rescue and building collapse rescues.

Firefighters said that the Kohl Center is a challenging spot for these types of high ropes rescues, where first-responders have to repel and work with a very limited space.
