Hibbing fire fighter Kristi McCormick crawls through the entanglement prop during last week’s training. The prop simulates being trapped in either a collapsed ceiling or an industrial hallway, where the extreme heat can make the cable bundles fall down into the hallway, entrapping the firefighter in a tangle of wires he or she may struggle to break free from. Instructor Grady Valencis evaluates McCormick’s work in the prop.
