The Livonia Firefighters Union held a Fire Ops 101 event that was designed to give City officials and other VIP's the chance to be a Livonia Firefighter for a day. We designed scenarios for each attendee to get a glimpse of what it entails to be a career firefighter/paramedic. Each participant learned what happens on the scene of a cardiac arrest.
According to the Livonia mayor’s office, Ethan Morche, Chase Adams and Colin Anderson, who all attend Churchill High School, were driving down Ellen Drive when they saw smoke coming out of garage. After calling 911 to report the fire, they reportedly heard shouts from inside the house.
