Students get haz-mat training

Some high school students learned a valuable lesson outside the classroom this morning.

Students at Lexington's Eastside Technical Center got an up close and personal lesson in haz-mat training.

Today's lesson was part of the homeland security class offered by the technical center.

The students tried on haz-mat suits and received hands on training from the Lexington Fire Department.

The class is for students who know they want to pursue a career in law enforcement or emergency services.

This is the third year of the partnership between the class and the fire department.

A hands on activity is held each week during the fall semester.
