Firefighters perform a live training exercise in Randolph, Vermont. The firemen ran drills to uphold their skills while a few worked towards certification. South Burlington, Burlington and the Vermont Air National Guard all had firefighters participating in the exercise. South Burlington Fire Department's Deputy Chief, Terry Francis, says the departments are working to recruit more women in the field.  ABC22/FOX44's Brittney Hibbs joined them and finds out the physical aspect is difficult but not impossible.
