Story

A four-day training exercise at King County’s Brightwater Treatment Plant will provide local firefighters with valuable hands-on technical rescue training.

Training will take place Nov. 4-7 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Brightwater Treatment Plant, which is located at 22505 State Route 9 S.E., Woodinville.

Drills will involve about 15-20 firefighters each day, as well as the participation of treatment plant employees. First-responders with several area fire districts in both King and Snohomish counties will take part.

During the training, emergency response vehicles may occasionally enter and leave the treatment plant campus with their lights and sirens turned on.

The training will enable firefighters to focus on technical rescue techniques that require saving life or property in potentially hazardous areas such as confined spaces or damaged buildings. Firefighters and plant employees will also have an opportunity to review and practice incident command and communication protocols.

People with questions can contact the Wastewater Treatment Division at 206-477-5371 or get more information online at www.kingcounty.gov/wtd.
