It takes a Village: Batavia, Fermilab and Warrenville firefighters work together, part 1

Last week, the Batavia, Fermilab and Warrenville fire departments conducted training exercises in the Village. FESS is removing materials from buildings scheduled to be demolished to be reused in similar structures elsewhere. The fire departments made use of these near-end-of-life buildings, running emergency drills in and on them. Here the Batavia fire chief joins Fermilab firefighters as they cut into one building's roof. Photo: Chuck Kuhn, BSS
