Firefighters to train at old Kim's restaurant

Medford Fire-Rescue will do rescue training from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, May 8 and 9, at the old Kim's restaurant building, 2321 S. Pacific Highway.

The Coquille Indian Tribe owns the former restaurant and has given the fire department the opportunity to train in the building before it is demolished.

Crews will conduct tasks such as fire hose operations, ventilation, and search and rescue through an obstacle course. Training there will occur over the next several months, fire officials said.

Training in the building will not affect other businesses in the area such as the Roxy Anne Lanes bowling center or Bear Creek Golf Course, which will remain open during their regular business hours.
