Santee to Host Regional Fire Training Exercise

Monday, May 4, 2015

If you see a large number of fire engines this week on Summit Avenue and adjacent streets, it’s because Santee is hosting a regional wild land fire training exercise that begins today, May 4.
More than 300 firefighters from Santee, El Cajon, La Mesa, Lemon Grove, Lakeside, Alpine, Viejas, Barona and Bonita fire departments will be participating.  In addition to classroom instruction, the firefighters will be outdoors performing live training exercises, including mock evacuations, laying out fire hoses and structure defense.

The training exercises –all simulations with no actual fires– will continue through May 29.
