BOONE — The Boone Fire Department will be conducting a live fire training exercise on a structure located at 2239 U.S. 421 South, Boone, on Monday, July 8, starting at 6 p.m.
Otherwise known as the Bolick property, the town of Boone will conduct its exercise on the “blue house,” which is part of property the town owns and on which it plans to build a municipal services complex on.
“The purpose of this training is to enhance firefighter’s knowledge, skills and abilities,” the notice from the town states. “The public is asked to take note that the training event will create smoky conditions in the immediate area, and to please use caution when traveling around the area.”
The notice also says a second training exercise will take place Aug. 17 starting at 8 a.m., also on the Bolick property.
