Phoenix FD shows ABC15 simulated collapse training area

PHOENIX - Rescue crews continue to dig, looking for victims in the bridge collapse in Florida that happened earlier this week. Ironically, Valley firefighters just trained on a simulated collapse the day before the tragedy happened in Miami.

Phoenix Fire showed ABC15 the pile of rubble they use to teach and stay skilled on complicated rescues.

The pile of concrete can be changed and the cars wedged between rubble moved to change up the exercise so it's never the same.

Valley firefighters train every week so they're prepared for these types of rescues.
