Local firefighters train in Ballston Spa

BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. -- If you're a firefighter, the place to be Saturday was the Saratoga Fire Training Grounds in Ballston Spa.

Nationally recognized state training experts gave local firefighters the opportunities to not only keep current on their firefighting skills, but to remember those who are no longer here to do so.

But it wasn't just training, but also an expression of gratitude to their brothers and sisters in New York City who lost their lives on 9/11.

The MacBoston 18 truck is a membership organization that has rolling memorials in the form of fire trucks with plaques carrying the names of all the New York State Firefighters fallen in the line of duty.
