Fire extinguisher training at Northeast

NORFOLK, NE - Bryce Smyth, of North Bend, a welding student at Northeast Community College, uses a fire extinguisher to put out a controlled fire under the supervision of Norfolk Fire Marshall Terry Zwiebel. Zwiebel was on campus recently conducting live demonstrations for faculty, staff and students.

“This was a good opportunity for our employees and students to learn to manually operate a fire extinguisher or to sharpen their existing skills,” said Marisa Hingst, director of environmental health and safety at Northeast.
