Firefighters ropeable after gear stolenWARWICK SMITH/STUFF A controlled burn at a Palmerston North house in March helped firefighters learn from realistic conditions. "This site is an essential part of a training programme to ensure firefighters are able to save people's lives. The exercise itself, where 20 firefighters from the New Zealand Defence Force will undergo training on Saturday, will go ahead. However, the firefighting gear was locked away, Kennedy said. "I would encourage anyone who may have information about this to please contact Palmerston North police."
