The Blackfoot Fire Department recently received a $5,000 grant from Basic American Food to help purchase a fire extinguisher simulator.

Without the simulator, 30 to 40 fire extinguishers need to be filled for training exercises.
The simulator has a screen like a television set. As the firemen train with fire extinguishers, the simulator tracks them as they “pull, aim, squeeze and sweep” with fire extinguishers.
