Staff at Columbia's Watch and Clock Museum received fire safety training this morning from the Columbia Borough Fire Department.

Assistant Chief Kevin Keyser led the training, which included the proper handling of fire extinguishers and an explanation of numbers and symbols on the labels, as well as where to position oneself in relation to the fire. Fire personnel also set a small fire so that museum staff could practice with extinguishers.

Personnel also toured the building to familiarize themselves with the interior in case of a fire call. For their efforts, the volunteers received museum passes for visiting the museum with their families.
