Six other fire agencies joined the Templeton Fire Department to practice fire attack, rescue, building search, backup operations and air support. In a news release, the Templeton Community Services District said these types of exercises give firefighters much-needed hands-on experience.

The other personnel who participated were from Atascadero, Paso Robles, San Miguel, Cal Fire/SLO County Fire, Atascadero State Hospital and Diablo Canyon Power Plant.
