New York's Fire Department Getting New Training Units

DeWitt Stern Group Inc. and Fireman's Fund Insurance Co. have given a $50,000 grant to FDNY to fund the purchase of new fire behavior units for training. The units will be create real "live" fire training exercises at the department's Training Academy on Randall's Island -- scenarios that depict conditions not normally encountered on a day-to-day basis.

Instructors will be able to educate firefighters about the science of fire, the department said.
