Longboat Key Fire Department conducts drills at former Hilton

Longboat Key Fire Rescue Chief Paul Dezzi said opportunities for departments to use commercial complexes for training don’t come along often.

But that opportunity came earlier today, when firefighter/paramedics used the former Longboat Key Hilton Beachfront Resort for training drills. Firefighter/paramedics practiced skills such as forcible entry, aerial ladder operations and overhaul.

There were no fire or smoke conditions during the drill.
