Watch KBOI Boise’s story on the FAC’s donation of a FARS system to the Meridian, ID Fire Department Training Center.
KBOI, the CBS station in Boise ID, came out to cover the Meridian Fire Department’s demo of their new firefighter air replenishment system (FARS). Meridian is the first city in the state to require FARS in high-rise buildings, and FARS will be installed in the new Union 93 project currently in development. The FARS system was recently installed in MFD’s training tower, thanks to a donation from the Firefighter Air Coalition. Watch Fire Chief Kris Blume and FAC board member Mike Gagliano talk about how FARS provides air to firefighters during a high-rise fire, so they can stay safe and protect the people inside.
