Recently, the Monett Fire Department hosted area wide training on structural collapse rescue. This training focused on shoring and stabilizing structures in the event of collapse or destabilization from tornado, earthquake, water erosion, or age.

The training was provided at no cost to the city through a regional grant spearheaded by the Springfield Fire Department.

Members of the Monett Rural Fire Association and the Cassville Fire Protection District also participated in the training.

"This type of training has been extremely beneficial," said Monett Fire Chief Tom Jones. "Our firefighters, as well as others in the area, have been responding to an increasing number of these types of emergencies so the training will be put to good use."
