Risking their lives and going into burning buildings are a part of a Grady County firefighter's duty.

"Practice makes perfect," said Grady County Firefighter Richard Phillips.

It may be practice but firefighters are preparing in an event there is a real fire.

"It's gonna have live fire they'll have teams that go in and out the fire," said Grady County Firefighter Seth Maxwell.

Firefighters said in 2010 they responded to more than six-hundred calls and for the new year they said they've responded to 9.

Fire fighters said in order to stay certified the state of Georgia requires 24 training hours a year.

This is the first time training took place inside this mobile live fire trailer ; before firefighters said they used old houses donated for training purposes.

Firefighters said each day they battle a blaze they're risking their lives and when doing so they live by the motto practice makes perfect.
